About this book
A comic novel in which a shooting landowner is reincarnated as a pheasant after his shotgun explodes in his face. He then follows his own murder investigation. From the author of "Sunbathing Naked" and "One People".
Life was always difficult for Banger Peyton-Crumbe, an antiquated, misanthropic blood-sport obsessive, but it gets considerably worse when he is killed in a shooting incident and returns to earth as a pheasant. Banger's family think his death was an accident, but his gun dogs, who witnessed their master's demise, know it to be murder.
