WINNER OF THE WHITBREAD FIRST NOVEL AWARD & WINNER OF THE SOMERSET MAUGHAM AWARD

'Uproariously funny' Observer

Overweight, oversexed and over there . . .

Morgan Leafy is hardly the most respectable of Her Majesty's representatives in the West African state of Kinjanja. For starters, he probably shouldn't have involved himself in wholesale bribery. Nor was it a good career move to go chasing after his boss's daughter; especially when his doctor banned him from horizontal pursuits.

But life is about to change for young Morgan Leafy. Every betrayal and humiliation he has suffered at the hands of petty persecutors is suddenly put into perspective. For Morgan has a dead body on his hands - and somehow, some way he's going to have to get rid of it.
