Synopsis

FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER 'THE STONE MAN', SHORTLISTED FOR AUDIBLE UK'S BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD 2015

In the late 1990s, a laptop was found in a service station just outside of Manchester. It contained a digital journal entitled 'TO THE FINDER: OPEN NOW TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE!' Now, for the first time, that infamous diary is being published in its entirety.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It's 1998. The internet age is still in its infancy. Google has just been founded. Eighteen year old supermarket shelf-stacker Nigel Carmelite has decided that he's going to become a vigilante.

There are a few problems: how is he going to even find crime to fight on the streets of Derbyshire? How will he create a superhero costume - and an arsenal of crime-fighting weaponry - on a shoestring budget? And will his history of blackouts and crippling social inadequacy affect his chances?

This is Nigel's account of his journey; part diary, part deluded self-help manual, tragically comic and slowly descending into what is arguably Luke Smitherd's darkest and most violent novel.

What do you believe in? And more importantly ...should you?

Praise for Luke Smitherd's writing:
"For me there is no greater joy than seeing an artist excel at his craft ... you'll be blown away by the abundance of ideas." - Ain't It Cool News.com
