The Suicide Club: a novel

Three misfits – close to genius, close to the brink – come together in a desperate love triangle.

When Bright is suddenly catapulted to fame, he can’t cope with the pressure. He decides to end it all by jumping from the 20th floor of a high-rise on his twentieth birthday. But he’s saved by the quirky, eccentric Gibby. Soon the two boys find themselves in a love triangle, vying for the attention of the beautiful, fragile, unreachable Lace.

The three travel from England to a beautiful old spa town in Bavaria. Here, in an experimental psychiatric institution under the colourful Dr Geoffrey, the pressure mounts.

Unflinching, but tender and often humorous, The Suicide Club explores the last taboo in our society – as well as our deep human desire to connect. Why do we feel the need to extinguish our lives? Is it possible to save the people we love?
