The Breaking of Liam Glass is not so much a Whodunnit as a fast-moving comedy noir What-they-did-after-it, that resonates in a timely way.

White teenage footballer Liam Glass is stabbed on a mixed-race estate next to London’s Regents Park and, with an eye to the main chance, journalist Jason Crowthorne sees him as his ticket to saving his job and getting to tabloid heaven.

In the following 24 hours, Jason is drawn into a web of increasingly fake news as he tries desperately to build his story, hide it from rival journalists and avoid arrest. But other powerful figures are determined to exploit the boy too, and they have even fewer scruples than Jason!

Liam Glass is a pacy black comedy that looks at the deep splits in modern communities, asking deep moral questions with sympathy and sharp humour.

A sparkling story about things you suspect are true and hope are not







"Noir, gritty and fast-paced." Natalie Saiph Massone



A darkly gripping and constantly entertaining satire of today’s media.

Harris hooks the reader from start to finish with this dazzlingly sharp and moving tapestry of modern life set at a time when phone-hacking was just a small cloud on the horizon.

If you liked Capital, Catch 22 and Bonfire of the Vanities you’ll love The Breaking of Liam Glass.
