Like Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and many rockers before him, Jim tries to end it all by committing suicide at the age of twenty seven. Trouble is... he survives. To clear his debts the bands manager suggests Jim fake his own death - just for a while - so they can raise The Tyrants profile and sell some records. But as the press and the fans wonder more and more about the disappearance of the mysterious Jimmy Tyrant, Jim gets drawn deeper into Birminghams gangland and further away from his ex-girlfriend, his troubled family and music. Karaoke-singing gangsters, reclusive teenage internet millionaires, sex, drugs and rock and roll all collide as Jim tries to understand the person he has become, to come to terms with his tumultuous past and somehow make it beyond the age of twenty seven. 27 is a book about one mans search for love, music and his true self. One of the greatest rock and roll novels ever written, by an exciting new voice.Ian Marchant, author of The Longest Crawl and Something of The Night
