If his estranged father hadn't dropped dead, Fat Charlie Nancy would still be blissfully unaware that his dad was Anansi the spider god. He would have no idea that he has a brother called Spider, who is also a god. And there would be no chance that said brother would be trying to take over his life, flat and fiancée. Desperate to reclaim his life, Charlie enlists the help of four more-than-slightly eccentric old ladies and their unique brand of voodoo – and between them they unleash a twisted force to get rid of Spider. But as darkness descends, is Fat Charlie Nancy going to get his life back in one piece or is he about to enter a whole netherworld of pain?
