About Don’t Breathe The Air
LOS ANGELES, 1996 – The body of missing teenager Jenny Schulz, daughter of a Hollywood music mogul, is unearthed in the foundations of a demolished building. It triggers a gruesome voyage of discovery for Londoner Paul Marston. Is his father Ronnie, an ex-roadie, somehow involved?
Searching for answers, Paul journeys from Holloway Road to Hollywood Boulevard. In the land of candy-coloured dreams, he soon discovers that behind every door something bad is waiting to happen.
Simon Fellowes’ debut novel is an edgy satire pumped with sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll – like Irvine Welsh channelling Harold Robbins …
Fellowes is clearly a gifted writer. His prose is pacy, full of life. He describes the hardscrabble world of not-so-gifted musician wannabes with wit and verve [...] a hint of Irvine Welsh. –www.crimefictionlover.com
