Montague Terrace by Warren and Gary Pleece

1. Montague Terrace

In Montague Terrace, nothing is quite what is seems. The eccentric residents are unsettling. All crowded under one roof, yet lonely in their apartments.

  • Paul Gregory, self-exiled pop crooner holed up in his apartment for years, with fading memories and a bottle of bourbon for company.
  • Beatrice Green, code-name Babushka, a former special ops agent now fighting council officials.
  • Marvo The Magic Bunny and Mystical Marvin, down-on-their luck entertainers hiding a disturbing past.
  • The Puppeteer, toiling away day and night, pulling the strings of world events and causing chaos.

Similar in tone and black humour to The Great Unwashed, this book discovers many stories about one extraordinary address. Welcome to Montague Terrace.
