“A comedy of ill-mannered gods and bad-hearted mortals. . . . Laught-out-loud funny and scary as a spider on your arm.”—USA Today
“Fat” Charlie Nancy’s safe, normal existence ended the moment his father dropped dead on a karaoke stage in Florida. There were many things about his father Charlie didn’t know. Like how his dad was a god. Or that he had another son—a charming trickster named Spider who is unlike Charlie in nearly every way.
Suddenly Spider is on Charlie’s doorstep, and life is about to get a lot more interesting . . . and a lot more dangerous than Fat Charlie could ever, ever imagine—or fear.
