Here is a short sample from the book:
Running alongside the narrow country lane grows a large laurel hedge. It’s almost ten feet high and runs for almost half a mile. Midway there is a break in the growth where two grand stone pillars rise from the ground. They support ornate iron gates which are closed to keep out the prying eyes of the passing public. On closer inspection and engraved in the stonework of the right pillar are the words – Preshaw Park, and mounted atop of each pillar are surveillance cameras each pointing in the opposite direction from the other along the lane.
