A stand-alone novel published by Hutchinson in 2010
When Stuart Font decides to throw a housewarming party in his new flat, he invites all the people in his building. After some deliberation, he even includes the unpleasant caretaker and his wife.
There are a few other genuine friends on the list, but he definitely does not want to include his girlfriend, Claudia, as that might involve asking her husband. The party will be one everyone remembers. But not for the right reasons.
