George Pantis is in a pickle. After walking out on his wife Rosie on Referendum night 2016 to shack up with hairdresser 'Brexit Brenda' next door, he thinks he's got it made - especially when he wins millions on a Kosovan lottery he only vaguely remembers entering.
Unfortunately, he's forgotten his password and can't get at his money. Which is a problem because he suddenly has to contend with lots of forceful new friends desperate to know his mother's maiden name.
As things quickly get out of hand, George must make a mad dash from Sheffield to the Adriatic - and into the arms of organised crime gangs who specialise in illegal kidney transplants and heroin smuggling.
George is in need of rescue - both from this pickle and from himself. But will his son, Sensible Sid, Brenda and Rosie put aside their differences long enough to help? And might the journey bring this dysfunctional family back together?

Silly, slow and ultimately boring
I love Lewycka’s early stuff, but this is real let down. What starts off as social commentary quickly descends into farce. Woefully unbelievable characters, a ridiculous story and zero believability. One to avoid!

I waited for her new book for such a long time as she is one of my favourite authors. I returned this book. It was so disappointing.
