Broken Heads

Sinclair Currie

Brilliant neurosurgeon, Davy O'Brien, and successful business tycoon, Bill Walker, are strangers with nothing in common except for one important fact - they are both at breaking point and nothing will stop them falling apart.

Their implosions are spectacular, and their unravelling complete. The men independently retreat to the idyllic coastal township of Broken Heads, hoping the picturesque beauty of this isolated coast will prove to be the healing balm they need. However, their plans to retreat into solitude are no match for an assortment of quirky locals, who make it their business to ‘fix' people.

Just as Davy and Bill come to realise that engagement with this tight-knit community might offer them the best prospect of recovery, trouble unexpectedly disturbs the peace of sleepy Broken Heads. Banding together with the locals, the two men are able to use their formidable intellects in an epic encounter of good against evil. But will the ensuing battle destroy fragile recoveries or finally mend broken heads?

The author was born, and grew up, in Scotland, but currently lives with his wife in Queensland, Australia, where the book is set. Mountain biking was something Sinclair took up late in life, but after his first downhill run, he knew he'd always remained a teenager at heart.

The descriptions of mountain bike racing within the book come from racing his sixty year old friends, who also remain fiercely competitive sixteen year olds.

The character of Rob McDonald was partly based on watching a friend's son develop into a champion mountain biker, and from making the connection that becoming a champion sportsman, and growing up to be a champion person are inextricably linked.
