For the last five years, since his father's death, Max has known that on his 30th birthday he would receive a small fortune. But the time he's had to wait has come at a price - in order to claim his inheritance he's had to prove to his grandmother that he's capable of "getting on" with his sister.

Normally this wouldn't be the most taxing of trials, but Max and sister Katrin have rarely seen eye to eye. Ever since he broke the neck of her parrot when they were children, they've gone from spat to spat. However, for the last five years, Max has somehow managed to keep himself in check.

Now, with only two weeks to go until judgement day, surely nothing can go wrong. But paranoia gets the better of Max when he starts bugging his grandmother's home, and that's just the start of his problems.
