So why does Lowell, a Manhattan collector of antiquities, still dream of what happened, despite his wife's best attempts to draw him back and offer comfort? And who is Susan, the teenager who appoints herself a detective, piecing together the story of the murders while wondering if she'll ever be loved like Starkweather loved his girl? And then there's Caril Ann herself, who takes us back to relive the ride she swears she could not control. It began on the day Charlie first saw her, dangling her bare legs off the edge of a tree house. It ended outside Valentine, Nebraska, on that night when she still believed that life could somehow go back to being normal . . .

Accompanied by his hard-partying, youth-obsessed manager (also his mother), and a bodyguard who is possibly his only friend, Jonny travels America on his sell-out tour, never going anywhere alone, trying to find his absent father, and playing his favourite video game; all whilst contemplating the possibility of returning to school to lead a 'normal' life for a while.
