|The Tax Inspector (Photo credit: Wikipedia)|
At 16, he is the youngest member of the dysfunctional Catchprice family, three generations of which live and work together in the family car dealership. Driven by the teachings of the self-help CD he has invested in, Benny invests in a new suit and a new haircut as part of his efforts to turn himself into the best car salesman ever and save the business, which is on the brink of bankruptcy when the tax inspector, Maria, comes to do her audit.
As the rest of the family tries to hide their dodgy financial dealings from the heavily pregnant Maria, Benny, who believes he is in the process of transforming into an angel, sets out to seduce her so that she will drop her investigation. Instead he falls in love with her and his love quickly turns to dangerous obsession.
Delusional, psychotic, aspirational and vulnerable, Benny is a character that stays in your mind long after the book has ended.
