Damien can't bear the thought of 88 coming back to live with him and Mum; memories of past violence are too strong. But there's glamour in having a father who rides a Harley Davidson, and it leads Damien to run with the in-crowd at school and abandon his real friends. Set in a small-town community in northern Australia, The Devil You Know takes you inside the mind and under the skin of a troubled boy with a vivid imagination and one who must wrestle with his own violent impulses and minor betrayals.
