If you need him, just tell a spider. He’ll come running.
Fat Charlie Nancy used to have a normal life. But that all changes the moment his estranged father drops dead in a karaoke bar, leaving a trail of chaos in his wake.

Now his brother, Spider, is on his doorstep trying to take over his life, flat and fiancée. And Fat Charlie’s going to have to resort to something drastic – and dangerous – to get back on track.
