Synopsis

Meet Ed Kennedy – cab driving prodigy, pathetic card player and useless at sex. He lives in a suburban shack, shares coffee with his dog, the Doorman, and he's in nervous love with Audrey. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence – until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery.That's when the first Ace turns up. That's when Ed becomes the messenger. Chosen to care, he makes his way through town, helping and hurting (where necessary) until only one question remains. Who's behind Ed's mission?Winner of the 2003 CBCA Book of the Year Award#44 in  Australia's Top 100 Favourite Homegrown Reads#50 in Australia’s 50 Favourite Kids’ Books poll, 2014
