Finbars Saturday night in is turned upside down with the arrival of a glamorous girl with a gun. A fast-paced, compulsive read
What it says on the back of the book
"There's no summer in here. All we've got is horse-racing on the TV, a roomful of stale air and three living corpses - Dad, Grandad and Grag - who...haven't made a sound in the last half hour."
It's the last Saturday of the month again and Finbar Black is spending the day at his Dad's. There's no reason to think that this monthly visit will be any less boring than usual, but when a crazy girl bursts into the house, with a gun and a bag full of cash, Finbar's day is suddenly turned upside down. Who is this beautiful stranger? What has she done? And how can she possibly get away with it?
Welcome to the black family: four generations of plotters and liars and cheaters and losers, with barely a whisker of trust between them.
