23-year-old Robbie has no job, but he never seems short of a bob or two. This is because he is a streetwise criminal who can talk himself into and out of just about any situation.
The only person in his life who he really cares about is his ailing grandfather who still thinks that Robbie is gainfully employed and is unaware that the job that Robbie has told him about doesn't actually exist.
Robbie tricks an elderly charity shop worker into giving him a very high value donation of clothing from a local famous rock star.
But problems occur when the son of the charity shop volunteer realises what his game is.
What will happen to Robbie and his beloved grandfather, now? Can Robbie put things right before they get too badly out of hand?
Can he fix things?
It's a well-told story about characters the reader comes to care about and clearly draws on the experiences of the author when he worked as a mentor for young people.
