"Anything awful makes me laught. I misbehaved once at a funeral." - Charles Lamb, from a letter dated August 9, 1815
To Tim and Bradley of the Sussex Ambulance Service and to the doctores, nurses, auxiliary staff of the Coronary Care Unit at Conquest Hospital, all of whose acquaintance I unexpectedly made when reaching the closing stages of this book. A heartfelt thank-you.
First and foremsnt, this is a book about death.
It was a teddy bear, and it began its long crawl upward toward the light.
The second installment in the "completely off-the-wall" new trilogy from the author of A HOUSE CALLED AWFUL END is packed with humor and excitement.
In this second Unlikely Exploit, Fergal McNally's brain--last seen in a pickling jar in the basement of Sacred Heart Hospital--is stolen, and the remaining McNally children find themselves mysteriously drawn to Fishbone Forest and the forgotten crumbling mansion that lies at its heart. There they meet the terrifying, teddy-bear-clutching Mr. Maggs, who has a fondness for riddles and is making big plans to change the world...which all sounds rather unlikely, doesn't it?
