AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Footballer, lover, detective, reluctant 'suburban boy' - Snowy Lane turns his gaze on himself and the place of his birth; the bands, the derbies, the pubs, the America's Cup, the entrepreneurs, the politicians, the backroom players, the cafe scene, the suburbs, the hills, are brought into fond and ironic focus as Snowy closes on Mr Gruesome and finds the beginnings of his own redemption. Dave Warner's first novel is inventive, energetic, irreverent and above all, a rivetting thriller. (Publisher's blurb inside front cover).
