Best-selling author Carl Hiaasen describes Mañana: "A … thriller that moves through Mexico like a scalded sidewinder As always, Hjortsberg delivers wild surprises, cool chatter and raw, unforgettable scenes."

Book Description

From the author of 'Back to the Old House'.
Set in the south of England at the beginning of the 1980’s, White Goods is a novel about loss and the search for the truth, told through the eyes of a deceptive twelve-year-old boy.
Scot Buckley is a complex young man, living under the shadow of absence: his mother encounters a horrific death at the start of the book. Further, he is haunted by the elusive existence of a relative simply known as ‘Jackie’ – whose very being the rest of his family are determined to keep secret.
White Goods opens very dramatically: a child is pushed into the icy, open mouth of a chest freezer and the lid is slammed shut. His identity and fate are central to the story, but remain a mystery until the end.
Aside from the imprisoning chest freezer, other domestic goods participate in the drama. Scot recalls that his mother’s death is the result of a gory accident with a dishwasher. However, all is not as it initially seems and, each time Scot recalls her death, the scene and the actual cause are different…

This edition published 5th November 2014.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! January 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love my kindle, but won't pay the hideous prices for some ebooks. That being said I download and read a lot of books when they are free, and have discovered some great new authors (Guy Johnson!). With the title and the synopsis of White Goods, I dove in, expecting the worst and hoping for the best. I am a prolific reader, usually reading at least 2-3 books a week. This book blew me away! I read it in little over a day, was unable to put it down, and immediately put it into my "Excellent Books Read Again" category when I finished. The way it was written was different and welcome. By knowing a tiny part of the ending I had to tear through the book to get to the whole ending. And I honestly did not see the end coming. Great book, beautifully written and absorbing, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a new book to read. Though I was lucky enough to catch this book when it was free, it is definitely worth the price listed now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Effective mix of humor and growing menace January 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was so absorbing - the writer creates such a strong sense of time and place and absolutely nails what it feels like to be a teenager dealing with a world that is suddenly expanding as your awareness of what adults get up to starts to intrude on the seemingly 'safer' world you inhabited when you were younger. An effective mix of humor and a menacing plotline build up the tension all the time - a great read that I've recommended to my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly absorbing January 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Really enjoyed this book, which took you on many a meandering tale of one boy's family life, building up to a big finish. Quite dark, but also some great humour too. Found myself laughing out loud one minute and wincing the next. More please!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! January 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was brilliant. i couldn't put it down.i didn't realise the book was set in the area i have lived in all my life until i started to recognise the names of roads,shops and pubs. all the different characters in the book worked so well. most of the story is told through scot a young lad with a rather mixed up life and family. i actually laughed out loud at some of his thoughts and also felt his fear and confusion at other times. this book was so easy to get into and i read it in a couple of days. i really hope that the author does a sequel to this book, as he promises at the end of it!

4.0 out of 5 stars darkly twisted February 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is hard for me to rate. The writer is excellent at keeping you guessing to the very end. So many twists and turns you are left feeling dizzy and confused as to what has really happened. The only reason it does not have a 5 star rating is that is was so disturbingly violent. I had a hard time getting into it as i new something awful was going to happen but the last half of the book, i have now stayed up til 5 a.m. To finish reading. Alarm will go off in an hour for work. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone who likes a good mystery and be prepared for a roller coaster of a ride. I will definitely be checking out his other books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!! What A Book January 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was a little weary of this book but than after the first 20 pages or so this book takes off like a rocket. It does not stop. The author is a twist master because every time I started to get complacent boom the whole story takes off again. Please read this book. This may have been the best book I've read in the last few years. Awesome.

A wild and crazy ride.
The book started out a little slow but at the 40% mark it took a turn into non stop crazy.
Every time I thought I figured out who was who and what was what, the author gave me another twist.
The ending was the beginning of the story and you think you know it but when you finally get to the ending it's not what you thought at all. I have never experienced anything like this before and recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading a good Thiller.
