Review

Excellent (Independent on Sunday)

A gritty, intense story full of pent-up emotion, fear and an overarching sense of something ominous and out of reach (The School Librarian 2008-01-01)

Book Description

A chilling story of murder and betrayal where nothing is ever quite as it seems.

Product Description

Cheap tabloid headlines scream the brutal facts at 17-year-old Robert Harrison: his parents have been shot dead in the sitting room of their suburban home. Robert's initial shock and anger is soon replaced by a growing sence of a conspiracy to protect him from the truth. So he decides to investigate the murder himself and the secrets he uncovers about his parents lead him to the brink of sanity and put his life in danger . . .

From the Back Cover

SLAUGHTER IN THE SUBURBS!Thieves Murder Couple in Cold Blood!

It was the sort of tabloid heading you could read almost any day. But these were Robert Harrison's parents - shot dead in their suburban home.

Robert's initial shock is soon replaced by intense anger as he becomes convinced that there is an adult conspiracy to 'protect' him from the truth. Frustrated by a host of unanswered questions and dissatisfied with the efforts of the police, Robert decides to carry out his own investigation and in doing so, he uncovers disturbing new details about his parents' lives - details which not only put his life in danger, but push his very sanity to the brink.

'Excellent'
