Call Time


Brought to you by Penguin.

The enthralling debut novel from Channel 4 F1 presenter Steve Jones - it's Sliding Doors meets High Fidelity.

Bob Bloomfield is, in the words of his best friend's wife, a 'selfish, arrogant a*sehole', who hasn't spent a great deal of time making friends in his 49 years on earth.

But what if he could change? What if Bob could stop the very thing that has made him the man he is, the death of his younger brother, Tom in 1986.

If he could save Tom, could he save himself?

. . . And what if all it took was a phone call?

About the author

Steve Jones

Steve Jones' first job was in a petrol station. It was also the first job he was fired from for putting diesel in Dai-The-Milk's petrol truck.
From there he gained employment in a printing factory before setting off for distant shores to "find himself". He subsequently found a mediocre career in modelling which thankfully segued into a fairly successful twenty-year (to date) career in TV presenting. His cherished accomplishments: he was crowned Welsh Rear of the Year in 2002. His suitcase has come out first at the airport on no less than two occasions, and now, he has written two novels, Call Time and Terminally Kill. Which he very much hopes you will enjoy.
