About First Person Shooter
Jayden lives with his father on the edge of a small country town. He stutters and is addicted to video games. His best friend Shannon knows how to handle a rifle. When her mum is released from prison, the town waits to see whether her sociopathic stepson Pete will exact revenge for the manslaughter of his father. Caught with ammunition at school and suspended, Jayden’s world disintegrates. As a drug war erupts, Pete gears up for his violent assault. Will it be left to Jayden to stop him?
Books+Publishing has compared First Person Shooter to the works of Craig Silvey, Tim Winton and John Marsden.
Cameron Raynes’ new novel draws on his personal experience of stuttering and has been described as ‘Menacing, brilliant, haunting.’ Kirsten Krauth
‘This is an event-filled book which deals with many themes: death, family disintegration, friendship and loyalty…No doubt it will be short-listed for, or win awards.’ Buzz Words
‘It’s a slice of Australian Gothic recommended for adults and older teens.’ Books+Publishing
