A Fistful of Seaweed

In October 1962 dark mushroom clouds loom over the world, but for J. F. Springer things are looking brighter. He has a lucrative job searching for a missing schoolgirl. His client, Ackerman, is one of the biggest businessmen in Westerby-on-Sea; he is also one of the biggest gangsters in Westerby-on-Sea. Doubts arise as to whether the girl even exists, or is in fact someone else entirely.
