Billy Butcher and the Open Door is the often funny story of a man released from prison after serving ten years for murder. The story deals with the difficulties of starting again after coming out of prison. Although the story is set in the seventies and courage, imagination and of course some luck were needed for Billy to start again, the same challenges still face ‘ex cons’. Indeed the internet has made it almost impossible to hide anywhere. The story takes Billy to the north of England and the abandoned building sites following a recent financial crash. He has a number of adventures with some very funny characters until he starts his own Insurance Brokerage and property company. In the boom that follows the recession Billy and others become paper millionairs, ‘ But pride comes before a fall’ as Billy’s mum would have said and another economic crisis brings ruin to many and Billy also faces not only financial ruin, but possible criminal charges.
