HECTOR GRIEVE IS A HELLRAISING SOLDIER OF FORTUNE.

Protecting on horseback the ruins of Angkor,
he gives bloodthirsty speeches to his men, drinks hallucinogenic
whiskey by the bottle, & boasts of being the greatest
lover that Angelina Jolie has ever had.

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

—once again—
the angriest young man in the world...



Its story contains ten horses, two pangolins, a unicorn, a peacock, several aspiring mermaids, a super yacht, Jonah Hill, three 1000-year-old temples, a bank raid, two political assassinations, a novel in Chinglish, a Holocaust survivor,
the drugging of an entire office,
a cannon mounted on a tuk-tuk, a real velociraptor, a hammer-wielding dwarf, and a man called Elvis.

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!
