Another hilarious tall tale from the master of the genre.
Henry Doors is the world's richest man. His company, Necrosoft, doesn't just market computer software, it sells immortality.
Billy Barnes is the world's most ruthless individual. When Billy isn't feeding bits of his granny to the voodoo handbag, he's furthering his ambitions: to control Necrosoft and run the planet. His way.
Lazlo Woodbine is the world's greatest private eye. And Lazlo's on the case. Or he will be, as soon as he can persuade the doctor to release him from his straitjacket.
Barry is the world's most famous sprout. He lives in Lazlo's head and he is confused by all of the above.
“'We read Rankin for his exuberant salmagundi of old jokes, myths urban and otherwise, catchphrases, liberatingly crazy ideas, running gags, recurring characters and locations, unreliable, autobiogrpahical anecdotes...he becomes funnier the more you read him'”
Mat Coward, Independent
“'This is Rankin at his comic best. He does for England what Spike Milligan does for Ireland. There can be no higher praise'”
John Clute, Mail on Sunday
