Pre-order now and get your early copy
Harry Whittaker is a world-famous, superstar actor, as revered as Laurence Olivier, as roguish as Jack Nicholson. When he dies suddenly of a heart attack he finds, to his astonishment, that he’s still here among us, able to watch the effect of his mean-spirited will on those left behind. Meanwhile his unacknowledged son Richard is struggling to escape from his failing café in Worthing, his dotty, demanding mother and the wrong girlfriend…
I romped through this! A mad handful of compelling characters, a generous helping of humanity, and a perfect ending. A warm-hearted read that fizzes with life.
Ali Bacon, author of In the Blink of an Eye and A Kettle of Fish
