Fourteen-year-old Neddy and his mate Les take swift revenge on the chicken-rustling Lynch Gang, but things turn sinister when vulture-like Hubert Salter stalks into town. There's a sex killer on the loose, and Neddy is in fear for his sister's safety. Pop culture meets Gothic melodrama in this brilliant, hallucinatory novel.
