Brilliantly, blackly funny and profoundly shocking, it tells the story of four young men: Cocker, Rez, Kearney and Matthew. Facing into the void that is the rest of their post-school lives, they spend their first summer of freedom in an orgy of self-destruction. Each of them in their own way struggles to keep their connection to reality - a reality they despise, but which conceals a chaos they cannot face. That chaos is personified in Kearney, a sociopath who moves seamlessly between the ultraviolence of his Grand Theft Auto inner life and the real world. Drifting aimlessly through the city, always seeking escape from family, indulging in as much drink and drugs as their money can buy, all four are poised on the edge of a decisive moment in their lives. An accidental moment of violence is the catalyst for Kearney's transformation from fantasist into real-world psychopath. Murder, suicide, rape and torture suddenly take a very real shape in their lives, leaving them with a single way out that carries profound moral consequences.
