Publisher's Summary

A heartwarming tale of office life, homicide and biscuits, which was longlisted for the Bath Novel Award 2017.

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 accidentally discovers a colossal corporate conspiracy, it soon becomes clear that someone will do anything to keep it a secret - including murder. 

Listen to this audiobook on its own or as a follow-up to The Perpetual Astonishment of Jonathon Fairfax - a best seller that was shortlisted for the Bath Novel Award 2014.

Critic Reviews

"It’s funny, it’s daft-yet-relatable, it’s still a nerve-jangly thriller and it moves at a cracking pace. In fact, if you’re stuck in a bit of a reading rut, it’s just the palate cleanser you need.” (Emerald Street)

"This one is even better than the one before. Buy!” (John Lenahan, best-selling author, magician and voice of the toaster in Red Dwarf)

totally enjoyed all 13 hours and 21 minutes

A wonderfully lighthearted, but in parts gripping book. Fabulous characters and perfectly narrated. A very welcome escape from all the gloom and doom.

Funny, clever and brilliant

Loved the book. Even better than the first book. Brilliant characters and great twists and turns. Can't wait for the next one but not sure there is one yet. It made me laugh out loud and cheered me up every chapter. Thoroughly enjoyed and recommend it.

More please!

I am so smitten with these books. Lovely story, fabulous narration. Genuinely funny and utterly charming. Delighted to see the author is writing a 3rd book. Just wish he'd get a wiggle on. If Finlay doesn't narrate that one too ... well, I will sulk.
