A dazzling tale, told with mordant wit, of the last seconds of a man's life as he leaps from a nine-storey building. Matthew Viss just wants to help. That's all he ever wanted. So it's lucky he works at The Greatest Gift - the city's premier concierge service. Whether you need a limo to the airport, a name for your dog, or someone to wait in your flat for the repairman, Matthew can help. He'll run your whole life - and he'll do it with a smile. This is the story of his downfall. A blackly comic and frequently moving account of a life going haywire in the service industry, Danny Leigh's debut is set in a world we often encounter but seldom notice. Written in prose that is at once hugely imaginative and brilliantly precise, The Greatest Gift marks the arrival of a remarkable new talent.
