Jim Tyler reckons he is halfway through his life, and all he has to show for it is a stalled career, a failing marriage, a monster mortgage, and lost hope.
Martin Swift is a boyishly handsome playboy who has grown bored after making his fortune in the city.
Jim and Martin are best friends, and now they’re going into business together.
For Jim, the new venture is the last hurrah – a final chance to instill some sort of meaning into his life. For Martin, it’s a chance to make money and have fun. After all, how hard can property development be?
As the two comically mismatched business partners lock horns, the company looks doomed. But what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, and if Jim wants to break free of his old life for good, he is going to need all the strength he can get.
