London 1968:
The Unstable Boys are the name on every music insider's lips, and tipped to follow in the footsteps of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. They don't know they're about to be obliterated by a series of tragedies and a chaotic break-up that puts paid to the band's starry-eyed dreams of stratospheric success. One day you're the dog's bollocks; the next day you're a nobody - fame is a fickle friend.

London 2016:
Bestselling crime writer Michael Martindale has reached breaking point. Estranged from his wife and children following the very public fallout of his disastrous affair, he is alone, with only his self-pity to keep him warm at night. Until he makes the mistake of publicly declaring his admiration for his teenage musical obsession, the Unstable Boys. When the band's twisted and feral frontman, the Boy, turns up on his doorstep, Martindale quickly learns that sometimes you should be careful what you wish for.

Razor-sharp and laced with a caustic wit, The Unstable Boys is a dark comic caper with an unmistakable musicality from legendary music journalist Nick Kent.
