Description:
Originally published: London: Jonathan Cape, 2012.
Lionel Asbo - a very violent but not very successful criminal - has always looked out for his nephew, Desmond Pepperdine. He gives him fatherly advice (carry a knife) and introduces him to the joys of Internet porn. Des, on the other hand, desires nothing more than books, a girl to love and to steer clear of Uncle Li's psychotic pitbulls, Joe and Jeff. Lionel is going about his morning duties in a London prison when he learns that he has just won £139,999,999.50 on the National Lottery. This is not necessarily good news for Des who has a secret that could unleash his uncle's implacable vengeance.

Funny, sweary, rude. Not my normal read but very pleased with my choice. Give it a go but not if you are offended by swearwords and rudeness.
