If you need him, just tell a spider. He'll come running.
Fat Charlie Nancy used to have a normal life. But that all changes the moment his estranged father drops dead in a karaoke bar, leaving a trail of chaos in his wake.
Fat Charlie didn't know his dad was a god. He certainly didn't know he was Anansi the trickster spider-god, lord of rebellion and disorder. He didn't know he had a brother, either.
Now his brother, Spider, is on his doorstep trying to take over his life, flat and fiancée. And Fat Charlie's going to have to resort to something drastic - and dangerous - to get back on track.
