Rate this:

A group of young people are searching for meaning in a dark and directionless world. The Course, a religious movement led by a charismatic priest, seems at first to offer everything the friends have been looking for: a community of bright, thoughtful, beautiful people. But as they are drawn deeper into the Course, money, sex and God collide, threatening to rip them apart.

This gripping novel of ideas lays bare a world where the advancement of a movement becomes more important than the lives of its followers.

His second novel (his first was a state of the nation novel about the financial crisis) is about a group of well off young people who are drawn into a Christian movement led by a charismatic priest (apparently the movement is based on the real life Alpha course). A pretty unsympathetic bunch of characters but their story is always interesting.
