Case #124 - Against the Grain

Incompetent private detectives Max and Ivan's holiday with Ivan's Uncle Cornelius (special guest Mark Heap) gets a bit too 'human sacrifice-y' for comfort.

Acclaimed double-act Max and Ivan return as incompetent private detectives for hire.

Thrown out of their office by unhinged landlord Malcolm McMichaelmas, a holiday with Ivan's anthropologist Uncle Cornelius (Mark Heap) on the remote Isle of Sudley seems to be the perfect solution. However, things quickly go awry as the boys get mixed up in a sinister underworld of murder, human sacrifice and sand.
