Both Dave Jackson and Michael Allen, two of the best fighter pilots in the Confederation, are hiding a secret that is directly affecting the war against the Rebellion.

Both pilots are living a lie, behaving in a way that is contrary to their beliefs and loyalty. Dave acts in an arrogant, rebellious, and insubordinate manner, a means to fulfilling his duty: His secret. Michael acts the loyal citizen, aiming to succeed, gain promotion and a good reputation in Confed, but what is his secret.

Dave is suffering psychological stress far more than his friend for two reasons: He knows his friend’s secret, which is tearing him apart, because he views it as a betrayal of their friendship. His ‘acting’ is preventing him from being who he really needs to be, but what really lies behind his behaviour. Will Dave buckle under the pressure when events take a turn for the worst, or will he fulfil what is expected of him when his loyalty is put to the ultimate test?

Bunny on a Bike by Bev Spicer

Bunny on a Bike


Carol and Bev have no idea about what they want to do for a living.  They see an advert for Playboy croupiers, and, with a typical lack of forethought, decide to apply.   After parading in bikinis and completing gruelling maths tests, (with a certain amount of cheating), they get the job.

They do four weeks training at Victor Lownes’ mansion in Tring, where there is free-flowing champagne and a well-stocked juke box.  They are commandeered to be photographed with Victor on his return from hospital, and are invited to attend one of his weekend parties, where they meet Peter Cook and Kenny Lynch (Bev has him confused with Kenny Everett!).

They encounter unscrupulous landlords and exact a savage revenge.  They deal blackjack to all kinds of punters, fend off lecherous pit bosses and almost fall in love. They get into all kinds of trouble and come out unscathed.

Bunny on a Bike gives the reader an amusing insight into life inside the casino and being young in 80s London.

Along the way, Bev and Carol make us laugh with their very different attitudes to life.  One thing is sure – they will be friends forever.

Bunny On A Bike by Bev Spicer

An Entertaining Read.

Bunny on a Bike is a very humourous memoir of Bev and her friend Carol as they embark on a short journey into the world of Playboy as croupiers in one of London’s casinos.

Bev’s description of the characters and the situations they found themselves in, made them appear all the more real, and by the end of the book, you felt as if you knew them personally. Having been a teenager in the 80’s, it was like stepping back in time.

It’s a shame Bev left before geting her bunny outifit. I would love to have read about the reaction of people seeing her and Carol cycling to work dressed as Playboy Bunnies!

If you like an entertaining light read, then I recommend this book. I loved it, but wish it had been longer!
