Jonathon Fairfax, the world’s most socially awkward hero, works for a giant corporation, where he specialises in muttering ‘um’ and tripping over bins. When he stumbles across a colossal corporate conspiracy, it soon becomes clear that someone will do anything to keep it secret – including murder.
This is the new book from the author of the Amazon UK bestseller The Perpetual Astonishment of Jonathon Fairfax, shortlisted for the Bath Novel Award 2014. Stylist called the author’s last book ‘a comic gem’ and The Guardian said, ‘you can’t help being tickled’.
