#016 mateo the cock of the rock


"Mateo is an adrenaline junkie on the edge. It all began with a no-responsibility lifestyle and a healthy enjoyment of extreme sports and anything involving a larger than normal amount of danger. But, the thrill he got from bungee jumping, caving and kayaking reduced the more he did it, and the added drama of someone telling him not to disappeared with his last girlfriend. To ensure his next jolt, Mateo seems to be adopting a progressively reckless attitude to his daily life, and driving without his lights on in the middle of the road has become the new norm. How far will he go in his increasingly unhinged pursuit of a high heart-rate?" (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
