Publisher's Summary

Driven by money, power and success, Gabriel has worked ruthlessly to get to the very top of the banking game. He's not going to let the inconvenience of a terminal brain tumour get in his way. But the tumour has other ideas. As it grows, it appears to be doing strange things to Gabriel's personality. Whether he likes it or not, he seems to be becoming less selfish, less mercenary, less unlikeable. Once he could dismiss the rest of humanity as irrelevant. Now he's not so sure.

Women in particular are becoming worryingly three-dimensional. And none more so than Caitlin, the unremarkable girl he sees busking on the steps of St Paul's Cathedral. When she plays her violin, Gabriel could almost believe that he has a soul.... But as each day that passes brings him closer to his last, has time run out for second chances?

Best-selling author Gavin Extence pushes the envelope again with another thought-provoking and funny novel about the surprises, good and bad, that life can throw at us.

    "A brilliant author"

    The story is good, deep, meaningful and thought provoking. The setting is modern bringing to the fore events which happened during the financial crash whilst touching upon subjects which affect us all.
    A book which leaves you thinking long after it's been read.
    The narration is also excellent.

    "Absolutely Brilliant"

    15 out of 10 if I could. Equally as good as the author's 1st book. Interesting story lines merged into one. Poignant & again made me audibly laugh quite a bit, even though there was tragedy. I hope Extence is writing a 4th book by now. I will be buying all of this author's works as soon as they are released. For me I found His 1st book was exceedingly good; it was excellent. His 2nd book very good & for me this 3rd book was again excellent. Hope he uses the same narrator for his 4th. I love the narrator's delivery too.
