Publisher's Summary

Charles Paris's star gig is as "forklift-driver-for-a-day" in a corporate video. Charles, dressed for the occasion in blue workman's overalls, must position the forklift and then declaim in the trained voice of an actor the wonders of the company and its big, happy family of employees. Charles delivers his lines with his usual aplomb, but he can't help wondering about the "happy family". Still, the pay is good for a couple of hours spouting platitudes. It's even rather fun to learn to manipulate a forklift. But it's a responsibility, too, as Charles learns to his horror: a forklift can be a tool for murder.

Absolutely Brettian!

The combination of Simon Brett's writing and his undeniably,,wonderfully, cynically scathing humorous acting delivery is sensational!
The Charles Paris character is unique and irreplaceable in the list of my favorite literary characters. Mr. Brett's ability to also create a secondary cast of characters who represent everything silly, funny, and hypocritical in the human species is second to none!
No matter what suspension of disbelief is required, the reader will always want to keep going with the hilarity and the mystery.
Thank you thank you thank you Mr. Simon Brett!
