He?s had a call from his old friend James Trellick, now president of Unigram, one of the largest record companies in America. Trellick has a huge headache on his hands in the shape of... Lucius Du Pre. The biggest pop star on earth. Well, once the biggest pop star on earth. Now he?s a helpless junkie and a prolific, unrepentant sexual predator.

Now available for preorder: KILL ´EM ALL, the stunning sequel to KILL YOUR FRIENDS What do you do when the homeless man on the street you´ve just given money to thanks you by name and turns out to be one of your ´closest´ friends, one you haven´t seen for over twenty years? Take him for a hot meal and see him on his way? Give him a lot more money than you usually would? Or take him in and try to get him back on his feet? For Alan, there´s no question - only natural that he´d want to see his old mate Craig off the streets, even if only for a few nights, and into some clean clothes. But what if the successful life you´ve made for yourself - good job, happy marriage, lovely kids, grand Victorian house (you did well out of the property boom, thank you very much) - is one that that your old pal would quite like to have too? Even if it means taking it from you? Gradually, inevitably, mayhem ensues as Craig turns Alan´s orderly household upside down, threatening to wreck Alan´s life for good. Following the divergent lives of two childhood friends, No Good Deed is a funny and painful examination of friendship; of the strange currents of ambition, loathing, pity and affection that flow between people over the decades; and of men getting older as they fail and succeed.
