Summary

Scenes of Moderate Violence is the debut collection from award-winning poet John Moynes. If you think that modern literature doesn’t include enough time-travelling cowboys, then this is the book for you. If you need poems about history, love, death, madness and the future then buy this book now. If you want a new pair of jeans you’re probably in the wrong shop.  
With poems ranging from the funny to the frightening, this is a book that refuses to be pinned down – and is perfect for readers who do the same.  
* 
‘John Moynes will make you laugh and make you think, and while he's at it he'll break your heart in a hundred different ways. Every poem in this collection is a thing of rare beauty. And so is each and every line. John manages to do that very difficult thing of being deeply wise while being deeply funny. And I deeply hate him for that.’ 
Paul Howard, author of the Ross O’Carroll Kelly series

    The Disappearance of Polly Dixon and The Persistent Pet Napper. 
    "Funny and insightful." 
     
    Best friends Paige and Sophie are putting their psychology skills to the test – they've opened an investigations agency. 
      
    They'll be a detective duo like no other! 
      
    At least, that's what Paige believes. No one else thinks they'll make something of this new and unexpected venture. But why wouldn't they be a success? Paige understands the mechanics of the mind and Sophie can read behaviour like a book. They're a little light on investigative experience or, erm, practical life skills, but they make up for it with intelligence, tenacity, and diligence. 
      
    After a couple of frustrating months without even a whiff of a client, they finally get a break. Someone is kidnapping pets, and the head of the Remuera Ladies Bridge Club wants them to find out who. As they start investigating with gusto, the possibility of another case appears. Nineteen-year-old Polly Dixon has disappeared. 
      
    Can they prove everyone wrong and find the missing girl?
