Pandaemonium

Pandaemonium

The senior pupils of St Peter’s High School are on retreat to a secluded outdoor activity centre, coming to terms with the murder of a fellow pupil through the means you would expect: counselling, contemplation, candid discussion and even prayer – not to mention booze, drugs, clandestine liaisons and as much partying as they can get away with.

Not so far away, the commanders of a top-secret military experiment, long-since spiralled out of control, fear they may have literally unleashed the forces of Hell.

Two very different worlds are on a collision course, and will clash in an earthly battle between science and the supernatural, philosophy and faith, civilisation and savagery.

The bookies are offering evens.

Reviews

ESQUIRE
** 'The Scottish author sticks to anti-Establishment finger-pointing and satire that is becoming his trademark
SHORTLIST
** 'It's the busload of teenagers who steal the show in a series of quite brilliant and very funny scenes . . . Very well-written, intelligent and daring
Harry Ritchie, DAILY MAIL
** '(An) imaginative tale
Henry Sutton, DAILY MIRROR
