"The Messenger is comedic, romantic, thrilling, confronting, playful, deceptive... While it shares qualities with Nick Hornby's How to Be Good and Iain Softley's film K-Pax, it is cleverer, subtler and more profound than either and, as a bonus, determinedly Australian." (Australian Book Review)

Meet Ed Kennedy - cab driving prodigy, pathetic card player and useless at sex. He lives in a suburban shack, shares coffee with his dog, the Doorman, and he's in nervous love with Audrey. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence - until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery.

That's when the first Ace turns up.

That's when Ed becomes the messenger.

Chosen to care, he makes his way through town, helping and hurting (where necessary) until only one question remains. Who's behind Ed's mission?

The Messenger, by the highly acclaimed author Markus Zusak, is a cryptic journey filled with laughter, fists and love.
