It might be a light read for all the serious readers out there but books like these make it to print not very often . The design of the book itself is somewhat offbeat and definitely the reading experience will be a laugh riot . . .
George , at fifty -seven is settling down to a comfortable retirement : undertaking projects around the house like building a studio in his garden , reading historical novels , listening to light jazz & such stuff . Just then , his daughter Katie , had to drop the bombshell : she is planning to get remarried to Ray . The family is not happy with Katie’s choice but they could do nothing more except send subtle hints and signals about how they feel about Katie’s idea . Still , they are getting ready for Katie’s wedding .
In the run-up to the wedding , the following things happen :
Katie is trying to work it out if she actually loves Ray or loves the way Ray takes care of her son Jacob . She has not been unaware of her family ‘ s disappointment with Ray – a man with strangler’s hands ( as Jamie observes ) who was not like them : a ‘working ‘ man .
Jamie , her brother , has a fallout with his partner , Tony , when he decides not to invite him for the wedding .
Topping it all off , Jean , her mother , is having an affair with one of George’s ex-colleagues .
In this melee , George discovers a lesion on his hip . With all the chaos around him , he spirals towards madness without anybody suspecting anything .
