Time is running out for James Dent. On the trail of missing singer Billy K, his team has exhausted every lead. The investigation has cost Dent his marriage, his home and possibly his job. All he has left is his instinct, and a copy of 'Show Me the Sky' - the book Billy was reading when he vanished.

With only the clothes on his back, Dent himself disappears. He believes he can solve this case alone. He can have little idea where this journey will take him. From the love letter of a motorcyclist sranded in central Australia, to the back streets and brothels of Mombasa, Dent begins to wonder if he is trailing a man, a ghost or himself.

Mystery, adventure, historical voyage, and journey of discovery - Show Me the Sky is an unforgettable ride.

Here's what you say about us...

Nicholas Hogg was born in Leicester in 1974. After studying psychology, he travelled widely, living in Japan, Fiji and America and he taught literacy skills to refugees in London. In 2005 he won the New Writing Ventures prize for fiction. Show Me The Sky is his first novel.

[A] subtle and clever novel...each voice is different and distinct. ... The whole is plotted so artfully that I had to re-read sections to pick out the author's carefully scattered clues, before working out what finally happened, and closing the book with a deep sigh of satisfaction.
The Big Issue

Like a four-part harmony, Hogg balances these voices, strengthening the book's message of staying true to one's roots.
Sunday Herald

Hogg's gamble that the reader will stick with what at first seem random stories pays off once it becomes clear how the different threads intertwine.
