Riassunto: Winner of the Readers' Choice Award for Humor and Satire at Big Al's Books and Pals 2012. Also winner of the Humor category in the 2011 Forward National Literature Awards. Chris Machin isn't his name, not to the bottom feeders in Aberdeen squabbling over North Sea oil and gas contracts. He has a code name - Sparrow - and when his garden explodes, he takes flight, plunging the power struggle into hilarious chaos and violence. A sociopathic cop and a shady ex-girlfriend aren't much help. The cop thinks that arresting suspects (innocent and guilty) must always involve violence and the ex turns out to be deeply involved in the events which are making Sparrow's life so complicated. The bodies pile up--some whole, some in fragments--and two wrestlers join the fray. A road trip seems just the solution, but then so do Inverness, a fishing trawler and a Russian factory ship as the players face ... The Sparrow Conundrum.
