Stay Away From Lightning Girl

review by Matt Condon - SundayLife! magazine (Sun Herald supplement) 1999

This second novel from the acclaimed singer/songwriter and former lead singer with The Sports opens with a delightfully simplistic premise and remains endearing throughout. Robert Moore is a former rock star whose band The Honeys has failed to crack the big-time in the US. As the novel opens, he is already dead, having been struck by lightning. He is suddenly having a conversation with Maigret, his official umpire in the hereafter and there is talk Robert may be relegated to the Dull Zone. This is a gentle tale of love that's hard to resist and probably superior to his first book, Wonderboy.
