OUT SEPTEMBER 15TH 2020!
Chris Pringle: simpleton, casualty or local heroPropped up by biscuits, benefits and a baffling faith in his plan, he lives in a world where every day is obsessively the same: wedged in his recliner, watching murder mysteries, taking notes.

Accompanied by a loyal crew of chancers, committed to making amends, and pursued by a depressed Detective Inspector, trying to join the dots, Chris heads back to the raves of his past, where a heartbreaking personal tragedy lies abandoned. But what exactly is Chris Pringle looking for? Has he really worked out the way to find it? And what will happen if he does?
An edgy, laugh-out-loud British mystery for fans of Gail Honeyman, Agatha Christie, Jennifer Egan, Ian Rankin, Matt Haig, Irvine Welsh, Ben Aaronovitch, Dave Eggers, John Niven, John Kennedy Toole, Belinda Bauer and Harland Miller.

Billy Moran is an award-winning television writer who is obsessed with music, TV detectives and how to solve the ultimate mystery: happiness.
He grew up in Dorset in the 1980s, recording the Top 40 and feeding apples to cows for entertainment, until the Second Summer of Love, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the rise of Madchester changed everything – Billy fell truly in love with music and daydreaming, and nothing has ever been the same for him again.
Billy has been a successful game show inventor, comedy podcaster and now writer, working on shows including the multiple BAFTA-winning Horrible Histories. ‘Don’t Worry, Everything Is Going To Be Amazing’ is his debut mystery novel, and it reflects not just the incredible freedom of the early 90s, but the struggle that many of his generation have had to feel they belong ever since. It’s a book about the questions we all have, and the way one very simple man uses his love of whodunits to try and answer them.
Billy lives in London, returning regularly to the West Country. He has two children, two cats and one football team.
