(From the publisher):
"I was never so amazed in my life as when the Sniffer drew his concealed weapon from his case and struck me to the ground, stone dead." So begins the story of Connor "Gil" Gilmartin when he catches his wife in flagrante with the Sniffer, his onetime colleague and now his murderer. But murder is only the first of the indignities that Gil must suffer. He lingers on as a ghost, and from this vantage point - one made even more unenviable by the fact that he must spend his afterlife sitting beside his killer at a film festival - he gets to view the exploits and failures of his ancestors, from the forerunners who sailed up the Hudson to Canada during the American Revolution to his university-professor parents.
