A serial killer is on the loose in a sleepy, Welsh seaside town, picking off victims like some people pick cockles...

The year is 1947 and three young men have recently been demobbed and are back at home in north Wales. It's the start of good weather and they're enjoying being alive.

They share the favours of Lilian Ridetski, who runs more than a high class hair salon in the town. When she and others are found brutally strangled, suspicion falls on all of her customers.

Blackmail and murder make Say Goodbye to the Boys both a dark comedy and a quick-witted thriller. It's also surprisingly tender, a portrait of old friendships lived to the gentle rhythms of a sleepy, wave-lulled town in the warm face of summer.

Written by Mari Stead Jones and based on notes she discovered in a wooden box belonging to her author father, Stead Jones, it proves that writing is a gift one can inherit, and introduces Mari as a comic writer of the first order.
