the dead club ebookThe Dead Club
(teen and YA)
Get it on Amazon!

An edgy, contemporary tale about death and suicide and its effects on two families. Death is a fact of life for the principle characters and especially for Marina Reed who wishes to join her loved ones at ???the dead club???, a place she and her sixth form friends obsessed about in their youth. Ultimately her mortido becomes more urgent until it takes her over the edge. The novel is in fact very much about edges: where the ultimate edge is between life and death.

What a reader says about The Dead Club: ???This book is exactly what I have come to expect and love about Kate Rigby’s work. Dark, edgy subject matter written with spiky black humour, interjected with the most brilliant, rounded and fascinating characters. The Dead Club starts with a group of young people discussing suicide, and how they would do it. The story then jumps forward to the present day, where a multitude of characters are dealing with life and death in different ways. It soon becomes apparent how Marina, one of the main characters is linked to the dead club of the past. What then transpires is a magnificent weaving of tales, past and present, and families. I particularly loved the first person poetic prose chapters from Zion’s point of view. Just brilliant. Like all Kate Rigby books, I soon cared about these people, all of them, even the less likeable ones like Jim. This latest offering from the author did not disappoint in any way. I can’t wait for more.???
