From Peter May, the author of the top 3 Sunday Times bestseller Entry Island and bestselling Lewis Trilogy, comes his latest standalone novel Runaway.
The decision for five teenage boys to leave their homes in Glasgow in 1965 and head to London is led by Jack Mackay when he is expelled from school. His friends need little incentive to run away from their abusive families and dead end jobs to pursue fame and fortune as a band. However, the boys find their dreams to be devastatingly different from reality, and within less than twelve months of their departure, only three of them return home, their lives irrevocably damaged.
Fifty years later in 2015 a brutal murder takes place in London and the three men, who are now in their sixties, are forced to return to the city to confront the demons which have haunted them and blighted their lives for five decades.
Runaway is a gripping crime novel spanning two cities and half a century. This extraordinary work by Peter May, explores how aspirations and expectations shape us and the pivotal yet changeable role that friendships have in our lives.
Peter May is available for interview and to write articles. For copies of ‘Runaway’ and for further information, please contact Sophie Ransom at Midas Public Relations on firstname.lastname@example.org. Tel: 020 7 361 7860.
