DETECTIVE DAN AND BOZO THE DOG (Dingle-cum-Dozy’s Top Amateur Crime Fighting Duo) investigate:
THE STRANGE CASE OF THE GOOSE FEATHERS
Lord Cruss-Tupper typed in a code into another keypad on the wall and the laser beams disappeared. Sloth was about to step inside when Lord Cruss-Tupper warned, "Wait. This floor is electric. If you step on it ten millions volts will course through your body. You’ll be burned to a crisp."
"Is that what they call underfloor heating sir?’"
"No, no, no, It’s there for burglars."
"Oh I see. So if the burglars get nice and warm, they’ll have a little doze and we’ll catch them in the act."
"No. It doesn’t make them nice and warm, it turns them into a heap of ashes."
"Tsk, tsk," said Constable Sloth disapprovingly. "You’re not allowed to do that to burgliers. It’s a against the law. You can only use reasonable force. So, for example, you can’t hit a burglier with a hammer, but you are allowed if you put a bit of foam rubber on the hammer first.’"
"Balderdash," said Lord Cruss-Tupper. "Anyway I’ve turned the underfloor execution er. er. heating off now. So it’s perfectly safe to walk on the floor."
"Constable Sloth put one foot on the floor and his shoe burst into flame."
"Ah, hold on,"said Lord Cruss-Tupper, tapping at the keyboard.
"That’s got it.’"
"My shoe’s on fire," said Constable Sloth.
Lord Cruss-Tupper grabbed a fire extinguisher and sprayed Constable Sloth from head to foot with white foam.
"It’s just my foot," said the column of foam.Click Here To Read Extract
