On a cold Sunday in 1979 the city of Birmingham, England, loses three of its most influential and respected men: a politician, a community leader and an industrialist. In this highly original and darkly funny book about the funeral business, two of the city's top mortuaries battle against each other in trying to secure the business of these three recently departed individuals. The author is one of Great Britain's most successful funeral directors.

"A very comical book at what lies six feet beneath the surface of the funeral trade." (P. Braithwaite, film producer)
