Polly is a real estate solicitor. She is also losing her mind. Someone keeps drinking her coffee. And talking to her clients. And doing her job. And when she goes to the dry cleaner's to pick up her dress for the party, it's not there. Not the dress - the dry cleaner's. And then there are the chickens who think they are people. Something strange is definitely going on - and it's going to take more than a magical ring to sort it out.

From one of the funniest voices in comic fiction today comes a hilarious tale of pigs and parallel worlds.

About Tom Holt

Tom Holt was born in London in 1961. At Oxford he studied bar billiards, ancient Greek agriculture and the care and feeding of small, temperamental Japanese motorcycle engines; interests which led him, perhaps inevitably, to qualify as a solicitor and emigrate to Somerset, where he specialized in death and taxes for seven years before going straight in 1995. He lives in Chard, Somerset, with his wife and daughter.

Our customer reviews

I am a big fan of Tom Holt. If you are also... no need to read this review just buy the book! If not this is probably not the best book to start with. I am usually entranced by Tom early but this book was a little clunky for my liking. Perhaps not up to the insanity and speed of everything else I have read by him. I normally have trouble putting his books down but this one sat neglected for a few days before I finished it. The idol does not have feet of clay but perhaps there is a little bit of fungus growing out of his toenail. Buy the book anyways!show more
