Itch is the debut novel from BBC radio presenter Simon Mayo. Itch is an accidental, accident-prone hero. Science is his weapon. Elements are his gadgets. All-action adventure.

A new element, never seen before. At first no one believes him - but soon someone hears about the strange new rock and wants it for himself. And Itch and his family are catapulted into a breathless adventure with terrifyingly high stakes...
