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 . . .
The story twists in a subtle way and Alan Durant disguises the plot well. I would give this book 8/10 and recommend it to anyone who likes mystery/thrillers.
The story makes a great read for its brilliant portrayal of troubled step-relationships
A haunting, gripping novel, part murder mystery, part psychological thriller.
A gritty, intense story full of pent-up emotion, fear and an overarching sense of something ominous and out of reach.
