Gary is a sweet and decent man. Only two things would improve his life - having children with his gorgeous wife, Pauline, and a lower golf handicap. Both are unlikely.
Pauline is wondering how she ended up living in an ugly little house, driving a second-hand car and making a living dressing up as Tinker Bell. She's planning to leave Gary for a self-made carpet millionaire.
Findlay, the Carpet King of Scotland, wants to trade in his obese wife for a younger model. But if he goes for a divorce, she'll take him to the cleaners. If only there was some way she could be made to disappear....
Lee, Gary's luckless brother, has botched one too many drug deals. Local crime overlord Ranta Campbell gives him one more job - one last chance to get it right. Lee's done some bad things - but murder?
When Gary gets smashed on the head by a golf ball and miraculously develops an absolutely perfect swing, everyone finds their fates rest on the final day of the Open Championship....

Never has a book made me laugh out loud as much as this one did. John Nivens best book in my opinion, however they are all great.
Thoroughly enjoyed this story. As a crap golfer, I can relate to Gary's predicament and all crap golfers will just get it.
I laughed out loud on several occasions .
WARNING: The coarse language isn't for the faint of heart. Don't have your car windows down in slow traffic when listening to this; you could get into trouble.

No spoilers from me
