The Dealer is a gripping and fast moving comedy gangster novel. Hard-core East London villain, Danny 'The Dealer' Dempsey, has settled for a quiet country life in the rural village of Buntleyford, but wakes one morning, in his heavily secured home, to find a letter resting on his pillow.
He is bewildered by how it got there, as there are no signs of an intruder, or a break in. The mystery of who the letter is from - and what it contains - is something The Dealer will not share, even with his closest friends, or his dear sister Sally. The Dealer, normally a clear lateral thinker, is suddenly behaving out of character; and so begins a crazy 12-hour period, in which he succeeds in ruining his sister's wedding, disrespecting other gangland leaders, and turning his hand to gambling on ludicrous bets.
Slowly but surely, The Dealer is dangerously offending and taunting everyone around him. Could The Dealer be on the brink of self-destruction? Or will he somehow succeed in saving his own skin at the final hour - while revealing to all the secrets of the letter that has clearly been dictating his bizarre behaviour?

Most people don't like being different.
They want exactly the same things as their neighbours, only bigger and more of them. Yet no matter how much they have, they always feel there is something missing.
The Smiths are not like other people. They might not be any good at cooking, or housework, or homework, but in their jumbled house full of strange things that will probably come in useful one day, they are happy and content. Well, almost.
The Smiths, too, feel that there is something missing from their lives.
And today the children went down to the shops and found it.
