Duncan Mackworth is a meek solicitor with a constant sense of fear: fear of accidents, fear of confrontation, fear of muggers, burglars, wild animals, women. When he advertises for someone to teach him self-defence, he opens the door to much more than he bargained for.

He’s shy, retiring and frightened. He’s scared he’ll be mugged, assaulted or spoken to by a female. Duncan Mackworth is scared of life. So he gets some help. He gets a personal instructor in self defence. And more.
Duncan Mackworth doesn’t know who to expect when he opens the door, and he certainly isn’t expecting a woman.
A woman who makes Tank Girl look like a Sunday school teacher. A woman who will change Duncan Mackworth’s life for … well, for as long as it lasts.
