Summary Sixteen-year-old Robin lives with his single father in the Victorian alps where they run a snowmobile hire business. Robin lives in fear of his bullying father and believes that it was his (Robin's) fault that his mother left them when he was a baby, which is why his father hates him and is the cause of all his problems. Robin has a mental condition - a fear of fear. As events unfold he runs from his father, he runs from the girl he loves, he runs into trouble, he runs from himself. His suspicions about his mother's disappearance grow. Could this be a murder mystery, or is this all part of his tortured mind? What has the swallows' nest got to do with it? As Robin starts to piece things together towards a dramatic climax, so too builds the intensity of everything else going on in his life: his fears and confusions, his unwanted images, his hopeless relationships, the desire of his first love. How this plays out in the fast-paced thriller of a finale will have the listener guessing to the end.
Target audience For secondary school age.
