UK. The present. Five life-long friends meet up once a year to play stupid pranks on people who have annoyed them in the previous 12 months. This time, however, the joke is on one of them. Patrice Harding, struggling stand-up comedian, is faced with the ultimate heckler. Can’t she take a joke? Apparently she can.

Scott Pixello's fifth novel is a dark comedy featuring a group of thirty-somethings, whose professional lives are so tedious that they seek escape by playing tricks on others. Are pranks just childish? Are women funnier than men? Why do people heckle at comedy gigs? These and other more pressing questions are addressed in a story jam-packed with memorable one-liners and enough laughs to brighten the darkest of days.

It’s childish. It’s fun. It’s payback.
