Product Description

Review

"A tense thriller founded on conveying psychology, Malarkey is a compelling British version of Robert Cormier's US classic, The Chocolate War" (Julia Eccleshare Guardian)

"Ingenious and exciting" (Kit Spring Observer)

"Clever, cool, suspenseful" (Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times)

"A gripping and dangerous read that stays in the mind for its chilling reality, the power of the story and the quality of the writing" (Wendy Cooling The Bookseller)

"Don't miss this! It's Keith Gray's best novel to date. Opening with a breathless bag chase, it doesn't let up the momentum for a second" (Michael Thorn Achuka)

Format: Paperback
John Malarkey is the new boy at Brook High, just trying to keep his head down, take his exams, and move on. But the Tailors have other plans; as the gang who run the school, an anonymous new kid is the perfect scapegoat for the biggest scam of the year - blank report cards.
From the exhilirating opening chase sequence, through the expertly drawn scenes familiar to anyone who has stepped in a school, and climaxing in a tense rooftop finale, this is another work of spot on observation and description from Keith Gray. Malarkey is a teenage Philip Marlowe; lead by his conscience, his respect for his mother, and his attraction to a pretty girl, he finds himself caught up in a variety of awkward situations.
My heart was racing as I read this book. The deviousness of the Tailors, the inadequacy of the teachers, and the tenacity of Malarkey, combine to produce an excellent thriller. Raymond Chandler for kids!

Format: Paperback
Malarkey is an exciting book that can grip right from start to finish. The book will certainly relate to teenagers as it gives them a large amount of what really goes on in a school, none of the nice Harry Potter stuff where the worst things you could do would be to call someone by a bad name. It deals with many matters that occur during normal teen's lives, bullying, teachers never believing your side of the story and other smaller issues. The idea of such a well organised gang as there is in Malarkey is a bit too far out of the ordinary to apply to real life, but the fact that the teachers are totally oblivious to what really goes on in the school is no surprise. Keith Gray's writing is all on suspense. Two highschool kids, one on his own (Malarkey) new to the school, without anyone really caring about him. One, with the rest of the school fearing him. These two fight with quick minds and each have something on the line. One - innocence. The other - money.
A good, fast paced, exciting book that all teens will love.

Wow! This book was utterly amazing except for the fact that Keith Gray seemed to want to cram as many bad words in as possible. The plot was amazing though. Teenager John Mararkey enters his new school and is framed by a gang of teenagers perfectly ruthless and extremely cunning. He has twenty-four hours to prove his innocence and as he does so he finds out just how shocking the school is. Black mail, stealing and violence going on right under the teachers nose. Who is behind this huge master plan? Who runs the school? Certainly not the headmaster. Will he unravel the mystery in time? Read and find out...

Format: Paperback
This is one of my favourite books ever. It is about a 15 year old going to a new school, one with thousands of pupils, and suddenly finding that he is getting into trouble that's not his fault. He is being framed by what turns out to be a school mafia. He has to expose this organization to avoid being expelled from his school...
The reason this book is so goo is that it is realistic. The characters, the way they behave, the whole setup is somehow so convincing and gripping that you have to read on. This is one of those books that you will finish in one night because you can't sleep for wondering what will happen.
