In small town suburbia, three young men are ready to make their mark.

Solomon is all charisma, authority and charm, down for the moment but surely not out. His half-brother, Jimmy, bounces along in his wake, underestimated, waiting for his chance to announce himself. Aleks, their childhood friend, loves his mates, his family and his homeland, and would do anything for them. The question is, does he know where to draw the line?

Solomon, Jimmy and Aleks: way out on the fringe of Australia, looking for a way in. Hip hop and graffiti give them a voice. Booze, women and violence pass the time while they wait for their chance. Under the oppressive summer sun, their town has turned tinder-dry. All it'll take is a spark. As the surrounding hills roar with flames, the change storms in. But it's not what they were waiting for. It never is.

    Here Come the Dogs by Omar Musa was not a book I could recommend to anyone. From the first page, it was as though I was in the company of people whom I would do my utmost to avoid. The aggression and the language was abrasive and the story was not one that I needed to know. I spot read through the book to see if there was any letup in style, but nothing I read encouraged me to give it another chance.
