Product Description

About ‘Don’t Breathe the Air’ by Simon Fellowes

When the teenage daughter of a Hollywood music boss turns up dead, it triggers a wild journey of discovery for Paul Marston who suspects his own father, an ex-roadie, is involved. He heads to LA to uncover the truth but finds his path crossed by wannabe-musos, cokeheads, psychopaths and some very grubby secrets. Frenetic, funny and savage, this is an amphetamine-fuelled chronicle of sex and corruption in the music business where the only stars to survive are those decorating the sidewalk.

Simon Fellowes’ riotous debut is the perfect guilty pleasure, featuring a cast of characters you never want to meet … If you’re a fan of writers like John Niven, Irvine Welsh or Chris Brookmyre, you’ll enjoy this fast-moving, satirical thriller.

Don’t Breathe the Air is the first title in Simon Fellowes’ Hollywood trilogy. Each book can be read as a standalone novel but we recommend you read them all, in any order, for a truly guilty pleasure!

Also available for Kindle.
