A ghost story with a twist...a suspenseful and poignantly funny
update of the Hamlet story Eleven-year-old Philip Noble has a big
problem: His dad, who was killed in a car accident, appears as a
bloodstained ghost at his own funeral and introduces Philip to the
Dead Fathers Club. The club, whose members were all murdered,
gathers outside the Castle and Falcon, the local pub that Philip's
family owns and lives above. Philip's father tells him that Uncle
Alan killed him and he must avenge his death. When Philip realizes
that Uncle Alan has designs on his mom and the family pub, Philip
decides that something must be done. But it's a much bigger job
than he anticipated, especially when he is caught up by the usual
distractions of childhood--a pretty girl, wayward friends, school
bullies, and his own self-doubt. The Dead Fathers Club is a
riveting, imaginative, and quirky update of Shakespeare's great
tragedy that will establish Matt Haig as a young writer of great
talent and imagination.
