William Skinner is Town Clerk to Greenhills, a market town on the English I Welsh border. William is an excellent Clerk to the Council and keeps the town’s affairs running smoothly; he is also devious and unscrupulous, and due to certain information he has about certain members, he runs the Council with an iron hand and the council meetings have become a mere formality to rubber-stamp the Clerk’s wishes. William has three loves in his life: money, power and his voluptuous secretary Nancy. Aided and abetted by Harold Prendergast, the incumbent Mayor, who runs a high class Gentleman’s Outfitters in the town, the Clerk and his friend are able to freely indulge their liking for the finer things in life, in particular expensive cars and vintage malt whisky.Due to the border line, which follows the winding course of the River Drenwy, most of the town lies in England, a situation which has long been a source of argument between the English and Welsh Nationalist residents, occasionally fuelled to violent levels by over consumption of strong Borderer beer, but for most of the time the Border issue remains dormant and Greenhills residents go about their daily lives in the peace and tranquillity of the sleepy market town. But the peaceful days are to abruptly end at nine o’clock on a warm July morning in an ancient public house, the Welsh Dragon, when a part-time builder and handyman, Dai Jones, accidentally discovers a centuries old charter when, in mid swing, the head flies off his old sledge hammer and a Welsh Dragon is roused and begins to flex its mighty muscles…
