What a Carve Up!, Paperback


This is a brilliant noir farce, a dystopian vision and the story of an obsession.

Michael is a lonely, rather pathetic writer, obsessed by the film, 'What A Carve Up!' in which a mad knifeman cuts his way through the inhabitants of a decrepit stately pile as the thunder rages.

Inexplicably, Michael is commissioned to write the family history of the Winshaws, an upper class Yorkshire clan whose members have a finger in every establishment pie.

But as a murderous maniac stalks the family, Michael realizes that his favourite film is coming true.
