The Rave


The Rave Book cover

It’s 1989, the second Summer of Love, and Tommy Collins is doing what he does best: organising all-night raves on a shoestring and playing a game of cat and mouse with the police. But with DCI Peach closing in on him, and his dreams of a better life slipping through his fingers, can he resist an investment offer from Paul Smart, the most hated and dangerous man in Valley Park?

To take the loan would be nuts; He could lose his friends, his family, his legs. Or he could try to pull of the biggest rave to hit the north of England.

The Rave is a fast-paced, gritty portrayal of life on the edges of society at the end of a decade that changed Britain forever.


This is a tease we made of The Rave when it was a movie script called ‘Heads’ back in 1998.
