HECTOR GRIEVE
IS A HELLRAISING
SOLDIER OF FORTUNE.

Protecting on horseback the ruins of Angkor,

that Angelina Jolie has ever had.

But when he's told that he is broke and that his father is dying, Hector has no choice but to return to Melbourne, where he finds

himself bored, outdated, and
— once again —
the angriest young man in the world...

While wrangling with self-serve checkouts and parking inspectors—and trying to revive a high-school
romance whose intensity he has grossly
misremembered— Hector gets wind
of a stash of gold belonging
to Australia’s billionaires.

Seeing in that immoral wealth
an adventure to rival his Cambodian exploits
he resolves to steal it all, and reunites his Cambodian
orphan-soldiers as he transforms himself into a
furiously anti-modern modern-day Robin Hood

I travelled 3 times to Siem Reap to
research its opening chapters
and wrote most of it in my hometown, Melbourne.

Written in 2016 and released in 2017,
GRIEVE is story of change, anger, & action;

and if Exquisite Hours is champagne,
then GRIEVE is hallucinogenic whiskey 
on the
cantankerous rocks.
