"Well, either way, you'll have to speak to him today because...unless I get my money by tomorrow morning there's not going to be a funeral." When your 11 year old brother has been tragically killed in a car accident, you might think that organising his funeral would take priority. But when Nicky's coffin, complete with Nicky's body, goes missing, deadbeat loser Matt has only 26 hours in which to find the 20,000 he owes a Glasgow gangster or explain to his grieving mother why there's not going to be a funeral. Enter middle brother, Pete, successful hedge fund manager with an expensive wife, expensive children, and an expensive villa in Tuscany. Pete's watches cost 20,000, but he has his own problems, and Matt doesn't want his help anyway. Seething with old resentments, the betrayals of the past and the double-dealings of the present, the two brothers must find a way to work together to retrieve Nicky's body and discover that they are not so different after all. Kevin Scott's first novel is an assured and audacious black comedy of sibling rivalries and a satirical comment on the failures of modern society.

Author Biography

Kevin Scott spends most days trying to put the right words in the right order. He graduated from the University of Glasgow Creative Writing MLitt programme with distinction in 2013, and was subsequently shortlisted for the Sceptre Prize. His short stories have been published in a number of magazines in the UK and US. He also previously edited the literary journal From Glasgow to Saturn and is a (currently lapsed) member of the Glasgow collective G2 Writers. This is his first novel. Away from creative writing he works as a journalist, where he is a business correspondent for The Herald. He lives in Glasgow with his pregnant (at the time of writing) wife, and son.
