PUSSYWILLOWLondon club owner Marcus Potterton has died, leaving his longtime girlfriend Rose (50 years his junior) in charge of his prime nightspot Pussywillow – a job that includes fending off a hostile takeover by gang boss Victor Dale.Unknown toMorePUSSYWILLOWLondon club owner Marcus Potterton has died, leaving his longtime girlfriend Rose (50 years his junior) in charge of his prime nightspot Pussywillow – a job that includes fending off a hostile takeover by gang boss Victor Dale.Unknown to Rose, Potterton bequeathed the club and the building it occupies to his nephew Leonard – who was a rather prim six-year-old on the only occasion Potterton ever saw him, many years ago. The bequest, though worth a fortune, was not made in a spirit of generosity but as Potterton’s expression of contempt for the rest of his family. Even so, the timing is good news for Leonard, who was about to go under.Leonard is Headmaster of Cowleys, a prim West Country boarding school that his naïve management skills have brought to the brink of bankruptcy. A dedicated teacher and academic, Leonard knows nothing of life beyond the school’s ivy-clad walls and has no business acumen whatsoever. He never wanted to be a Headmaster- the job was thrust upon him by malicious fate. Well aware of his own failings, he sees his windfall as salvation for Cowleys.To Leonard, Pussywillow is an asset that must be sold ‘for the good of the school’.To Rose, Leonard is just another ruthless landlord ready to sell out for personal gain.Coming from different worlds, as they do, with only conflicting interests in common, Rose and the Headmaster face the underworld as an uneasy duo, as the pursuit of their separate ambitions leads them into territory neither of them knows how to cope with.
