Down on his luck and broke, Angel is forced to get two jobs - and one is definitely dodgy. He is drawn into a series of underworlds, from the twilight world of London's homeless to that of role-playing fantasies, where the monsters suddenly become real and the games aren't so funny any more.

Down on his luck and flat broke, Angel is forced to take desperate steps and get a job. Two jobs, in fact, and one – at the request of the unpredictable Tigger O'Neill – is definitely dodgy.
As the Caring Nineties and the New Age pass him by – although not, he is alarmed to see, some of his friends – Angel is drawn into an underworld of callous crime and corruption; the seedier side of the gay scene; the twilight world of London's homeless…Then there is the underworld, literally, of role-playing fantasies where the monsters suddenly become real and the games aren't so funny any more…
“Enough funny one-liners to keep a television comic going until retirement”
“Hugely funny, with a catch in the laughter; politicians should steer clear of the talented Mr Ripley as he cuts through the fluff of the Caring Society”
“A wonderfully seedy, evocative book, with the comic thriller elements nicely balanced”
