Back when they were students, just like everybody else, Ray Ash and Simon Darcourt had dreams about what they'd do when they grew up. In both their cases, it was to be rock stars. Fifteen years later, their mid-thirties are bearing down fast, and just like everybody else, they're having to accept the less glamorous hands reality has dealt them. Nervous new father Ray takes refuge from his responsibilities by living a virtual existence in online games. People say he needs to grow up, but everybody has to find their own way of coping. For some it's affairs, for others it's the bottle, and for Simon it's serial murder, mass slaughter and professional assassination.

Found on a bench in Brighouse at the side of the canal on a freezing Friday lunchtime.
Thanks, Plum-crazy for leaving the book there and introducing me to the book crossers!
Half way through and I really can't put it down.

The Ray in this book is nothing like the English Teacher I had at school! He is seen by his pupils as a bit of a pushover and their antics lead to all sorts of problems for Ray as he goes missing from class one day.
With an international terrorist and a lady cop reminiscent of Lara Croft, this could easily have been a corny, far-fetched story, but Anthony Brookmyre's brilliant storytelling overcomes all that to produce a work of excellent fiction.
