Time is running out for James Dent. On the trail of missing singer Billy K, his team has exhausted every lead. The investigation has cost Dent his marriage, his home and possibly his job. All he has left is his instinct, and a copy of 'Show Me the Sky' - the book Billy was reading when he vanished. With only the clothes on his back and GBP5000 in his wallet, Dent himself disappears. He believes he can solve this case alone. He can have little idea where this journey will take him. Mystery, adventure, historical voyage, coming of age - Show Me the Sky is all this and more. It is a dazzling novel about the power of books to change lives, which will keep you guessing until the final page.
'Like a four-part harmony, Hogg balances these voices, strengthening the book's message of staying true to one's roots.' Sunday Herald
