A twisted novella from the author of The Lanarkshire Strays series.
It's not easy being Head Boy.
Follow Davie Diller for seven days as he navigates his way through his turbulent life. A scheming bastard in and out of school, Diller screws, drinks, snorts, cons and kills his way through the Lanarkshire underworld and attempts to survive the attention of his local drug-lord, Hondo, who's less than impressed by Diller's growing debt and status; He's also having a busy week at school.
A brutal and wickedly funny novella inspired by The Prodigy's 'Smack my Bitch Up’ music video, Irvine Welsh's "A Decent Ride" and by John Niven's 'Kill your Friends'.
The Lanarkshire Strays Series connects characters and stories from Lanarkshire. All books are standalone stories.
Praise for Head Boy:
"His Diller creation is in equal measures compulsive and repulsive." - Ryan Bracha, author of Tomorrow's Chip Paper and Paul Carter is a Dead Man.
“The main character pulls off the ultimate deception that even the most observant reader does not fully comprehend until the very end.” – Craig Furchtenicht, author of Dimestore Bandits.
"The language is strong and the violence is sickening yet it all blends together to be yet another triumph from the author who is maturing with every book. Simply stunning!" - Colette Brown, author of Maybe The Universe Just Isn't That Into You!
What the Readers say:
"Very different from the previous Mark Wilson books. Gruesome and gripping story, but still has that trademark underlying Lanarkshire humour - couldn't put it down. A fantastic read."
"Davie Diller is an emotionally inept young man and a scary bastard. I think I quite fancy him! I was particularly pleased to see PTSD feature in the novel and be handled in a respectful and realistic manner."
