Knowing Max

By James Long

At the age of thirteen, Miles Malan witnesses a horrifying fatal accident, which will never fade from his memory.

Ten years later, in an old trunk in a street market, Milo, as he now likes to be called, catches sight of a photograph that takes him back to that tragic day – and will plunge him into an extraordinary story. Going through the contents of the trunk, Milo begins to piece together the life-story of its owner Max Owen, from the extravagant Thirties in Monaco and St Moritz, through the Second World War, to the shady underworld of post-war London.

Milo has good reason for hiding from the present, but the past, it soon becomes clear, is far from dead. Knowing Max will change Milo’s life for ever.

James Long is the author of Ferney and four acclaimed thrillers. A former BBC correspondent, he lives with his family in Devon.
