The Prick

“Enthralling, compulsive reading, begging to be read in one sitting.”

The London Magazine

Caught in a rip-tide while snorkelling on holiday with his girlfriend, Will has the fortunate misfortune of having his life saved by Roland, a man who turns out to be his worst nightmare. Falling into a guilty friendship with his rescuer, Will is consumed by how irritating and fascinating he finds Roland. At the cost of everything and everyone else in his life, Will is hellbent on working out what makes someone not just a prick, but The Prick.
