Product Description

Review

Action-packed and full of gallows humour --Sunday Telegraph

Funny, poignant, easy to read and yet very unsettling ... a cross between a thriller, a road trip, comedy and social documentary --Crime Fiction Lover

Seriously addictive example of French noir and reflection on human life --The Friendly Shelf

Product Description

Death is Simon’s business. And now the ageing vermin exterminator is preparing to die. But he still has one last job down on the coast and he needs a driver. Bernard is twenty-one. He can drive and he’s never seen the sea. He can’t pass up the chance to chauffeur for Simon, whatever his mother may say. As the unlikely pair set off on their journey, Bernard soon finds that Simon’s definition of vermin is broader than he’d expected...Veering from the hilarious to the horrific, this offbeat story from master stylist, Pascal Garnier, is at heart an affecting study of human frailty.
