Book Summary

Suffering from a rare genetic condition that causes him to smell like a decomposing fish, Kevin Broom hides in his London apartment and runs an online Nazi memorabilia store before stumbling onto a crime scene involving a missing Jewish boxer and a fascist entomologist who wants to breed an indomitable beetle in tribute to Hitler.
