Summary

Darren has two big talents: cricket and trouble. It is no surprise, then, 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 going...until the day we meet him, middle aged and in the boot of a car, and everything pointing towards a shallow grave.

Gripping suspense from the Ned Kelly Award-winning author of Quota.

The Best!

This is a fantastically written book and the narration brings it to life. At first the emphasis on cricket made us wonder whether it was a good choice for us but the plot carried it through to end up being one of if not the Best of many, many audible books we’ve heard. I only hope Jock Serong keeps them coming.
