Annotation:
Gripping, suspenseful, and violent, this young adult novel follows two brothers as they search for their sister Rachel's murderer in a tiny English town filled with mystery and ill-will. Fourteen-year-old Ruben has psychic abilities, and these help him to connect with his angry older brother, Cole, who desperately wants to find Rachel's killer so they can bring her body home to their mother. Filled with intensity, drama, and a page-turning plot, Kevin Brooks's story brings to life the brothers' dangerous plight.

Praise

"The protagonists are intriguing and original, with their gypsy background...and outsider sensibilities." 04/01/2006

"Peopled with singular protagonists and downright scary villains, this bleak-yet-romantic tale is a whirlwind ride for the right reader." 02/27/2006

Booklist
"Fast, clipped, immediate, raucous...the dialog is poetic; so is what's left unsaid. The simple words, and the spaces between them, reveal secrets, breakdown, betrayal, and love." 01/01/2006
