Terry’s dead-end IT job is about as much fun as an internal cavity search with a shovel and no lube.
• Chances of a promotion? None.
• Chances of a raise? Forget it.
• Chances of romance? Don’t go there!
Social life? No thanks! The height of his entertainment is playing a prank on his sleeping colleague while ‘mile high’.
It’s definitely time for a change. But how?
• A reluctant work trip to Ohio
• A gorgeous young girl who inexplicably finds him interesting - don’t jinx it!
• And a mysterious wooden box he finds hidden in his late-fathers workshop
The girl believes they are together for a reason.
Terry can’t imagine why…
Life as he knows it is about to change, BIG TIME!
What people are saying…
“It moves along at a cracking pace and is a great balance of dark (but not too dark) and light - a few moments did make me laugh out loud. I’m now eagerly awaiting the sequel”
“If there was a second book available at the time of writing this review, I'd have already purchased it. The author has actually found a rare balance of humour, poignancy, and intrigue which entices you to keep turning the pages. The characterisation is superb and I felt genuine empathy with Terry (the protagonist) early on. He is such a relatable character and I think we all know a Terry. Either that, or we are a Terry!”
“A great debut from this author. I laughed out loud several times whilst reading this book. The characterisation of the protagonist is believable and the author must work in the IT industry to know the types who work there. Highly recommended if you want a light and enjoyable read. I'm hoping the author writes a sequel.”
“It had me page turning from the very beginning. Terry is like the male version of myself!!! The book made me laugh and it made me cry. Although I’m not an IT person I enjoyed the tech talk! Desperate for the sequel now!!!”
“I really liked this book. It's a convincing tale of a man stuck in his own private hell and finding his way out of it, or at least it seemed that way to me.
There's some odd bits about it, but they're good bits.”
“I loved this book. A real page turner. The characters are believable and relatable and it’s full of what I call ‘intelligent humour’!! Would definitely recommend.”
