Publisher Description

From the author of the international bestseller The Book Thief and new novel Bridge of Clay.

"comedic, romantic, thrilling, confronting, playful, deceptive" Australian Book Review

Meet Ed Kennedy - cab driving prodigy, pathetic card player and useless at sex (self-proclaimed). He lives in a suburban shack, shares coffee with his dog, the Doorman, and he's in nervous love with Audrey. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence - until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery.

That's when the first Ace turns up.

That's when Ed becomes the messenger.

Chosen to care, he makes his way through town, helping and hurting (where necessary) until only one question remains. Who's behind Ed's mission?

Protect the diamonds, survive the clubs, dig deep through spades, feel the hearts... The Messenger is a cryptic journey filled with laughter, fists and love.

The Messenger

A friend introduced me to Markus when she recommended that I read "The Book Thief" I was so impressed with his writing that on completing it I was hungry for more of his work. Next was "The Messenger" which is not only a beautiful story but truly thought provoking in a way that will challenge anyone who reads it to look at their values of life. Brilliant!

Mmm

I've read the sample. The writing is great like Zusak himself, but I dread the plot.
