Teenager Jolyon Jacks comes of age in the man's world of professional squash, on the worldwide 'PSA' tour. A chance game against a girl at school leads fifteen year old Jacks to Manchester, and the iron-hard, iron-willed coach, 'Sailor' McCann. Sailor wants Jolyon to abandon his rich private school education for full time squash.
Aubrey Waddy is perfectly placed to write a scurrilous story about a squash player. His denials about a scurrilous nature lack conviction and his playing experience is extensive. Aubrey's squash was tempered in first grade competition in Sydney and Adelaide in the early 1970s. On returning to England he reached the UK national rankings, was Hampshire county champion in 1973, 1974 and 1975 and county captain in 1980 and 1981. He resumed playing squash in 2007 after a twenty five year retirement, and his relatively low-mileage joints have allowed success in Masters competition. Aubrey gained selection for the 2011 England team that won that year's Over-60s Home International Tournament in Cardiff, and he has notched up a number of Masters wins, including the 2010 English Open Masters and the 2011 Ulster Masters. Aubrey's lifetime interest in squash gives him an unrivalled insight into the competitive player's mind. This, combined with his passion for weaving words into a story, provide the perfect writing storm for the first novel set in the high energy world of competitive professional squash.
