For years Jaxie Clackton has dreaded going home. His beloved mum is dead - and he wishes his dad was too, until one terrible moment leaves his life stripped to nothing. No one ever told Jaxie to be careful what he wishes for. And so Jaxie runs.

It is a place that harbours criminals and threatens to kill those who haven't reckoned with its hot, waterless vastness. This is a journey only a dreamer - or a fugitive - would attempt . . . 'Wonderful. Brutal, agonizing, tender' Sarah Winman 'Unforgettable . . . heartstopping' Mail on Sunday 'Raw, brutal and merciless . . . Holden Caulfield, you have been eclipsed' Spectator 'Transfixing' Philip Hensher
