When Jonathon Fairfax accidentally helps a murderer bump off Sarah Morecambe, the secretary of a senior politician, he sets off a chain of events that astonishes him. This isn’t surprising — Jonathon is astonished by pretty much everything — but he is particularly shocked when he finds himself caught up in a plot involving a conspiracy that goes to the very heart of government.
Teaming up with a suave private investigator, a glamorous grannie and the probable love of his life, Jonathon must confront his greatest fears — including talking to girls and balaclava-clad killers — and answer some very difficult questions. Who murdered Sarah Morecambe? What is the strange secret that unites the entire British government? And what exactly does it feel like to kiss a real-life woman?
With its naïve, reluctant hero and wry look at modern life, The Perpetual Astonishment of Jonathon Fairfax is a must-read for fans of Douglas Adams and Jonathan Coe.
