WINNER OF THE WH SMITH'S PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD [New Talent] There are 750,000 Irish living in London. One of them has to get out. For good... It is the summer of 1999. Bic (half-Irish, half-Scots) is eking out a living selling crepes to the hordes descending on Greenwich market. With one severed ear, two bizarre deaths and the arrest of his dog for civil disobedience, Bic's year hasn't exactly been going to plan. But when raven-haired Roisin takes the stall opposite his, things seem to be looking up - if Bic can just get past her over-protective brothers. That is, until Bic wakes up the-morning-after-the-night-before, in his clothes, in Edinburgh, to find he's the UK's Most Wanted Man - on the run and with fourteen murders to his name... 'Very fresh, very funny' COLIN BATEMAN 'A huge and exciting plot...I loved the twist at the end' Goodreads 'Great story and full of humour' Goodreads
