'"The phone rings. It's Jesus. I listen to him speak and then hang up..."'
In this darkly comic, slow-burn thriller, reality is blurred... nothing can be taken for granted.
A gripping and poignant black comedy about love, friendship, booze, morality, death... and a generation's casual dissatisfaction with modern life. Sometimes, redemption lies in the darkest of places.
"You don't need to die to destroy yourself."'
Killing Richard Dawson is a brilliant fast-paced story with a shocking twist. The reader is sucked into the uni student narrator's inner and outer worlds as he navigates his way, with wit and humour, through the minefields of loss, friendship and unrequited love. Death is the only constant in his life, yet Robin Baker deals with it with an irreverence echoing Evelyn Waugh's classic satire.' (From the publisher's website.)
