Cuttin' Heads

"Wow. Watson's shrewd play on words harbour fear thoughout. If you love music, plot twists and horror stories, this book is for you. It's a book I will not soon forget."

The Eclectic Review

"The skill of writing was unreal. My skin was crawling, I couldn't look away, I had to peer into the toilet to check for demons any time I went to the bathroom. An absolutely unparalleled use of tension, coupled with the horrible feeling that something is out there."

Book Odyssey

"Cuttin Heads is what you get when you take Trainspotting and mash it up with Dennis Wheatley, The Exorcist, The Devil's Advocate, and Bedazzled. Think Stephen King at his earlier, terrifying best, but with tighter plotting and deeper characterisation. The author has taken the brooding malevolence and explosive rage of rock and captured them on the page like scientists trap sound vibrations in a box."

Bookshine and Readbows

Aldo Evans is a desperate man. Fired from his job and deeply in debt, he struggles to balance a broken family life with his passion for music.

Luce Figura is a troubled woman. A rhythmic perfectionist, she is haunted by childhood trauma and scorned by her religiously devout mother.

Ross McArthur is a wiseass. Orphaned as an infant, his interests include game shows, home-grown weed, occasional violence and the bass guitar.

They are Public Alibi. A rock n’ roll band going nowhere fast.

But when the sharp-suited, smooth talking producer Gappa Bale offers them a once-in-a-lifetime chance to make all their dreams come true, they're soon caught up in a maelstrom of fame, obsession, music and murder.

Before long, this trio of troubadours will be forced to ask themselves, is it really better to burn out than to fade away?
