Summary

London, 2045. Three months into the Coffee Wars, and Britain's caffeine supplies are at critical levels. Brits are drinking even more tea than usual, keeping a stiff upper lip and praying for an end to it all.

A secret government coffee stockpile could save the day...but then mysteriously disappears overnight.

One man is asked to unravel the missing-coffee mystery. His name is Pond. Howie Pond. And he's in desperate need of a triple espresso. Meanwhile, his journalist wife, Britt, is hunting royal fugitive Emma Windsor on the streets of the capital.

Can Howie save the British Republic from caffeine-starved chaos? Will the runaway royal be found? And just what will desperate coffee drinkers do for their next caffeine fix? Find out in Paul Mathews' latest comedy-thriller set in the Britain of the future.

Agent Pond hunts down the missing coffee

What can I say, this is just as funny as books one and two with the added bonus of it being about coffee, which I love, so Howie's desperation to find the missing coffee was totally understandable.
Gildart's narration is perfect as always.
There are two problems with this series, one is that book 4 is not yet released in audio, and the second is that they always leave me longing for a hot dog smothered in onions and mustard.

Very enjoyable and fun

I thoroughly enjoy this series. As I listen to the audiobook I have such fun visualizing a movie version. I hope there will be many more adventures coming.
