Summary

Paul and Mikey are on the run, apparently from the press surrounding their house after Mikey's release from prison. His crime: child murder, committed when he was a boy.

As they travel, they move from one disturbing scenario to the next, eventually involving themselves with a bizarre religious cult. The power between the brothers begins to shift, and we realise there is more to their history than Paul has allowed us to know.

Critic reviews

"Daniel Shand's debut is a brilliant, unpredictable road novel, curdled through with a unique descriptive lyricism. My Book of the Year." (Alan Warner)

Loved Fallow and now I want more Daniel Shand

I'm no one for writing detailed reviews, aww I'm saying is, if you like what I like you'll love this.
What I like in regards to Fallow:
1. Scottish setting
2. Murder, thriller and suspense
3. Scottish narrator (Angus King is one of, if not THE, very best)
4. Interesting, twisting story and well-written characters
5. You're thinking about the book long after you've finished listening to it.
6. You want to listen to more by the same author.

Bizarre story of murder and mayhem.

Keeps you guessing to what is going on all the way to the end. Well read by the narrator.
