Product Description

“Today I shot the girl I love.”

Sixteen-year-old Imogen is looking forward to a perfect, lazy English summer. But her world is turned upside down by three refugees, all hiding from life. Anthony is fourteen, already an outcast, bullied and shunned by his peers. Farid is an asylum seeker from Afghanistan, who has travelled across continents in search of peace. Gordon Craig is a bitter, lonely man. She knows them all – but not how deadly they are. Being part of their lives could cost Imogen her own…

Supercharged with tension and drama, this novel is about what happens when the fabric of normality is ripped apart, exposing the terrifying dark beneath.

“Gibbons is not one for James Bond-style pyrotechnics. His stories pack a punch because they are so convincing and passionately narrated.” The Sunday Herald
