An electrifying wild-ride of a debut novel from award-winning playwright

Meet Cherry, a bandit queen on the run, driving a pink soft-top convertible through the Badlands of Southeast England. She's never felt more Thelma and Louise in her life - except there are three of them in the car and one of them is dead.

How did a head nurse and mother of two end up driving a handcuffed policeman and the corpse of a murdered refugee on a journey to find justice? Pursued by a racist, roid-raged, shaven-headed officer of the law - not to mention by her husband and daughter - what else can a woman with a conscience do in modern Britain?

Thrilling, radical and darkly comedic, Anders Lustgarten's open-hearted storm of a book explores pressing political concerns with clear-sightedness and holds a mirror up to contemporary Britain.


"A heady mixture of murder mystery, black comedy, and an introspection on what makes us human. As an added bonus, the whole amazing story is built on an expert analysis of the state of the British economy and society." —Ha-Joon Chang, author, Edible Economics and 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism
