Agatha Bilke Strikes. Again

As Agatha Bilke sits in A and E at the Rottington Hospital, she knows she's done something awful . . . or has she? The trouble is she can't remember a thing. Covered in bandages, she finds herself admitted to the children's ward, filled with patients who have been there for months with no sign of improvement Dennis Guffe a boy with stomach pains, Holbeck Folbeck, a trust-fund kid with a 20-a-day habit (and a bad foot), and the obnoxiously nice Cauliflower Trinkle (is she thick?). The Worst Girl Ever Known to Humanity was never going to be a cooperative patient, and when an X-ray reveals a ghastly truth the sort of thing you wouldn t want anyone finding out about you she flees the hospital. In this hilarious sequel to The Awful Tale of Agatha Bilke, Agatha performs routine heart surgery, carjacks an ambulance and uncovers the cause of a National Disaster. But what has she done with Cauliflower? And can she stop 'Holby' finding out her terrible secret?
