A novel of suspense about family, sport, celebrity, rivalry, masculinity and the high price of getting everything you want.
Darren Keefe and his older brother are sons of a fierce and gutsy single mother. Darren has two big talents: cricket and trouble. No surprise that he becomes an Australian sporting star of the bad-boy variety - one of those men who's always got away with things and just keeps getting.
Until the day we meet him, middle-aged, in the boot of a car. Gagged, cable-tied, a bullet in his knee. Everything pointing towards a shallow grave.
Narrated by Darren from the boot of a car on his way to what's sure to be his own murder, this ambitious literary work is impossible to put down. Reads like literary fiction, grips like a thriller.
