A black comedy and high-school noir from a critically acclaimed writer "A darkly comic and original mystery novel filled with Raymond Chandleresque noir dialogue" - The Telegraph Someone is on a killing spree - slaughtering the school pets with a cold-blooded savagery. The number-one suspect: Johnny Middleton. Johnny's had problems in the past, but they're behind him now. So what if he still sees the world a little differently? He's not crazy and he's not a killer. And he's going to prove it.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A gripping, original and stylish novel -- Amanda Craig * The Times *
Whereas wannabe noir fiction often mistakes bleakness for darkness, McGowan has empathy for his troubled protagonist. If a disturbing read can be fun, if laugh-out-loud can have heart and soul, McGowan's got it nailed -- Keith Gray * Scotsman Magazine *
McGowan's high school noir is fresh, fast and seriously good fun * Booktrust *
A masterfully clever story with a tongue-in-cheek sense of wit * Sister Spooky *
McGowan achieves some gorgeously, glitteringly mad writing. -- Philip Womack * Literary Review *
An original, unsettling noir thriller. -- Amanda Craig * New Statesman *
A subtle, shifting and surprising story that avoids easy definition and is memorable...weirdly wonderful * Books For Keeps *
Hello Darkness is a darkly comic and original mystery novel for young adults filled with Raymond Chandleresque noir dialogue -- Martin Chiltern * Telegraph Top 10 YA books of 2013 *
