‘Uniquely twisted … cracking gags’ – Rob Grant, THE GUARDIAN ‘Frantically wacky and wilfully confusing … gratifyingly clever and very amusing’ – MAIL ON SUNDAY
There are very many reasons why British summers are either non-existent or, alternatively, held on a Thursday. Many of these reasons are either scientific, dull, or both – but all of them are wrong, especially the scientific ones.
The real reason why it rains perpetually from January 1st to December 31st (incl.) is, of course, irritable Chinese Water Dragons. Karen is one such legendary creature. Ancient, noble, near-indestructible and, for a number of wildly improbable reasons, working as an estate-agent, Karen is irritable quite a lot of the time. Hence Wimbledon.
But now things have changed and Karen’s no longer irritable. She’s FURIOUS.
An hilarious comic fantasy novel from the most inventive writer in the field – revealing, for the first time, why it’s always raining! Books by Tom Holt:
