Publisher's Summary

After an absence of seven years, Greg Bowman returns home from America to find his father lying in a bamboo coffin, his estranged brother, Billy, stalking a woman with no feet, and his 79-year-old uncle, Frank, planning to rob a bank.

While renovating the family house, he is unexpectedly visited by the presence of his dead father and charged with the task of 'fixing' the family. In the course of his reluctant investigations, Greg discovers not only the secrets behind his brother's and uncle's strange behaviours but also an unsettling secret of his father's and one that brings him face to face with the unintended consequences of his own past.

    Story
    "Funny and heartwarming"

    The northern accents grate initially but I soon warmed to them. Same with the story. I thought I would struggle to finish this book at first then suddenly found myself immersed in the story and characters.
    Uncle Franks trip to the coast made me laugh out loud and I'm still smiling thinking of "cheese!"
    Ended up listening to this book in one day and enjoyed it immensely.
