A number of mysterious and potentially dangerous sightings and incidents were reported in England and Ireland some years ago. In ‘Alicia Billington’s Best Cat’ by Andrew Pender-Smith, the author has created a work of horror and suspense which provides a possible answer as to how these strange events occurred. To say more would spoil the reader’s quest to solve a puzzle that, some say, has never been satisfactorily explained. After reading this short work of fiction, available on Amazon Kindle, you might be tempted to read more widely on what brought armed police out into some of the remotest areas of the English and Irish countryside as well as a few front gardens and backyards.
So, who exactly was Alicia Billington? What did she do for a living and how did she become so closely attached to her cats?
