Neil Gaiman - Anansi Boys

If his rotter of an estranged father hadn't gone and dropped dead at a karaoke night, Fat Charlie Nancy would still be blissfully unaware that his dad was Anansi the spider god. He would also have no idea that he has a brother (called Spider) who is also a god. And now this brother is trying to take over his life, and is generally doing a much better job of being him.

Desperate to reclaim his life, Charlie enlists the help of four eccentric old ladies and their unique brand of voodoo - and together they unleash a bitter and twisted force to destroy Spider. But as darkness descends and badness begins, will Fat Charlie Nancy get his life back, or is he about to enter a whole netherworld of pain?
