Wilt in Nowhere : (Wilt Series 4) Paperback
by Tom Sharpe
Part of the Wilt Series series
When his endlessly capricious wife Eva receives plane tickets for the family to visit Auntie Joan and Uncle Wally in Atlanta, Wilt knows only one thing - that nothing could entice him to fly three thousand miles over the water, and especially not two rotund Americans with more money than sense.
What better way to escape and find equilibrium then to embark on a walking tour?
Just Wilt, the countryside, and an ill-judged bottle of whiskey...Meanwhile, Eva finds her plans to inherit Joan and Wally's fortune slipping away faster than her sanity, thanks to a combination of sinister teenage quadruplets with foul mouths, and her unexpected role as lead suspect in a drug-trafficking plot.
Outrageous, darkly comic, and packed with calamity on top of calamity, Tom Sharpe's latest episode of Wilt's misadventures is a razor-sharp farce that will delight fans both old and new.

Review by Greatrakes
The return of the usual cast, including a by now clued-up Inspector Flint who is happy to let all the other forces of law and order (including American spooks) chase Henry through a complex set of blind alleys. Henry is walking through a remote part of England whilst Eva and the quads cause chaos across the Atlantic. Both, of course, manage to involve themselves in sex scandals and violence, whilst innocently blundering through a series of unlikely co-incidences.It made me laugh out load on a few occasions, and not many books do that these days.
Review by Rynooo
Terrible, literally the worst book I've ever read.Clumsily written, unimaginative and above all, absolutely unfunny.
