Publisher's Summary

Connor Gilmartin's inauspicious, but much beloved, mortal life comes to an untimely end when he discovers his wife in bed with one of his more ludicrous associates, Randall Allard Going. Death becomes a bit complicated when Gilmartin's out-of-body experience stays an out-of-body experience. Enraged at being so unceremoniously cut down, he avenges himself against his now panic-stricken murderer.

Enjoyable if meandering

I'm a huge Davies fan and I found this book funny and heartbreaking by turns.
The plot device used sometimes seems too roundabout and can be too distracting torward the end.
Really superb reading!
