Listen to an audio extract.

Moo Nelson walks through life alone with his eyes down, avoiding the rain, being pushed and laughed at by others and wishing things were different.

Until the night he sees a car chase and a murder ... or does he?

What is the truth and who wants to know? It seems a lot of people do - the police, the lawyers, the bullies at school, and one very bad guy indeed.

Moo must decide between truth and lies and he must do it soon, before someone else gets hurt ...


' ... taut and driven thriller from a writer who has ... firmly established himself as a major author.'
'Utterly compelling ... He writes from the heart ... '
'Find a quiet place, take a deep breath and enjoy this fine novel.'
' ... an aggressive thriller and probably the loudest book ever written.'

You wanna know the TRUTH? I’ll tell you the TRUTH – I’m sick of it. Sick of all the FAT stuff and Callan and Vine and the bridge and the road and the cars and the eyes and the words and the lies . . . GOD. I wish I’d never been there . . . never got INVOLVED . . . Yeh,

"Cos back then every Day's the same - Oneday, Twoday, Threeday, Fourday, Fiveday, Scatterday, Dumbday ... every Day's just another day ... "
