about this book: 'The Death of Danny Daggers' follows an ensemble cast of characters over a few days in Cardiff at the end of summer.

Danny Daggers is a university student and a YouTube star. He's taking his popular series of alcohol-downing videos on a nationwide tour. Within a few days of arriving in Cardiff, his body will be found floating in a river. Who killed him? Why?

Rory Gallagher is a hard-drinking journalist at The South Wales Post who takes an interest in Danny Daggers' death. Ji Eun is a Korean student who's doing work experience at the newspaper. Rory acts as a mentor to Ji Eun. They work together to investigate Danny's death.

Tom and Joseph both work at a call centre. Tom hates the job and lives for spending the money he earns at the weekend and in the evening, usually at a bar. Joseph has been unemployed for some time and is just happy to have a job.

Then there's the Amstell brothers. Simon Amstell has escaped from prison and hides out with his two brothers. He wants them to help him kidnap his young son and flee the country. His son's mother is now in a relationship with Joseph. And Simon's brothers are psychopaths.

These characters interact over a few wild days of heavy drinking, drugs and ultraviolence. 'The Death of Danny Daggers' is a darkly comic tale set against a backdrop of dystopian modern Britain.
