AN LIVING IN THE PAST, REALLY SOLVE THE FUTURE? THE HILARIOUS, HEARTWARMING, DEBUT HIT NOVEL FROM AWARD-WINNING COMEDY WRITER BILLY MORAN
Chris Pringle: simpleton, casualty or local hero?
Propped up by biscuits, benefits and a baffling faith in his plan, he lives in a world where every day is the same: wedged in his recliner, watching murder mysteries, taking notes. Until the day a peculiar crime stumps the local police — and Chris announces he can solve it.
Accompanied by a loyal crew of chancers, committed to making amends, and pursued by a depressed Detective, with demons of his own, Chris heads back to the raves of his past, where a heartbreaking personal tragedy lies abandoned.
But what exactly is Chris Pringle looking for?
And has he really worked out the way to find it?
