Screwge A Modern Christmas Carol by Chris Child

“A scary funny modern version of a timeless tale, destined to become a classic in its own right.”

“A contemporary Christmas Carol which asks how much we sacrifice to get what we think we want.”

“Essential reading for anyone who feels too stressed to enjoy life.”

Can Carole change course before it’s too late? This Christmas she will get the chance.

Carole Goodge is a 35 year old workaholic lawyer with her own practice just off Regent Street. She has sacrificed everything to build her career and make money. Obsessively controlling and penny pinching she employs one poorly paid assistant paralegal Neeta, a single mum of a young daughter.
On the night before Christmas, Carole returns to her office to pick up some papers and when she gets home she is confronted by her ex-partner’s ghost Jake Farley, who was tragically killed seven years ago just when they were setting up their firm Farley Goodge.

Farley tells her she will be receiving messages from three ghosts: Then, Now, and Next….

Find out what happens in this brilliant, scary, and exciting book.

Inspired by Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
