The View From The Cab.

Danny Kemp
For the Ladies out there Who Do Lunch. (Not for the prying eyes of husbands who pay for it)
I stopped the cab for a very well presented Lady today in a street just off Belgrave Square. She was going to lunch at a newly opened restaurant near Saville Row, but first asked if I would mind if she did a little shopping with two friends. The three spent about ten minutes in a French Perfumery establishment then another similar amount of time in a nearby bespoke hat shop with me watching the world go past and the meter gleefully clicking over. After that twenty minutes of exhausting labour and with a couple of light weight shopping bags the three climbed in and off we went.
Shopping is such a tiring thing. Is that what you all tell your husband when he gets home?

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
