From boyhood I had always been fascinated by the adventures of Dixon Hawke and his young assistant Tommy Burke. They were really carbon copies of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, as were Sexton Blake and Tinker.
Hawke stories were launched by D.C. Thomson in 1919 in a small 100-page booklet, ‘The Dixon Hawke Library’, which was published until 1941, 576 issues in all. Then we had the annual paperback of short stories which lasted until the early 1960s.

High in the mists of the Welsh mountains lurked ferocious creatures hunting human flesh and blood.
The Lewis family had hand reared a pair of baboons which lived with them for several years in their remote home.
Then came the 1976 Dangerous Wild Animals Act which demanded costly security to be installed. They could no longer afford to keep their pets so they secretly released them in the Welsh Mountains.
Nothing more was seen of the primates but they had reared their young, hidden from humans, in the vast forests and mountain mists.
Then, forty years later, the killings began and the mountains became a dangerous place for climbers and walkers.
