The Power of Local Friends

Roderick Archer

Would you sell your home if Dave and Mac McClann offered you the best price?

You may be a widow, frail or lonely. You may be struggling with bills or repairs. Or has time stranded you in an unneighbourly neighbourhood? Your capital can buy you rooms in the best nursing home. There you can make new friends and even get back into the swing of things.

It's as easy as signing their letter of sale.

 

WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?

 

Who stands a chance against developers with experience on both sides of the law, their shady solicitor and networks that include money laundering and reach as far as Russia? Geoff, the physiotherapist? His tennis partners, Julie and Shirley? Shirley too is a solicitor, but is she smart as well as stunning? Who will rally opposition to rapacious developers, or realise that distinguished old buildings are not all that is threatened?
