Max Fagan is trapped in the self-defeating algorithmic processes of his daily life, influenced by his mental bully, Charley Axon and the negative thoughts and emotions swimming around in his mind called the attic piranhas.
When Max uses a top-secret relic left over from World War Two to achieve his desires, he gets what he wants--money and prestige inside the corporate world of the Elegant Watch Company, but it comes at the expense of everyone else. He quickly discovers a diabolical plot devised to cause the company, and the citizens of the city, to plummet into financial ruin. To foil the mastermind of the plan, Max coerces his best friend to take part in his unorthodox problem solving methods. As they attempt to reverse the resulting chaos, matters only get worse. Together, the unlikely pair of heroes attracts some bizarre characters who may be more than meets the eye. Max finally realizes the power to change things was within him all the time, and the resolution comes after the final showdown with Charley Axon.
If a fantasy/action novel had a funny bone, it would be The Attic Piranhas. It's a tale filled with nonstop adventure, humor, friendship, and love, shaken not stirred.
