From the Back Cover

Twelve-year-old Steven Lamb digs holes on Exmoor, hoping to find a body.

Every day after school and at weekends, while his classmates swap football stickers, Steven digs to lay to rest the ghost of the uncle he never knew, who disappeared aged eleven and is assumed to have fallen victim to the notorious serial killer Arnold Avery.

Only Steven's nan is not convinced her son is dead. She still waits for him to come home, standing bitter guard at the front window while her family fragments around her.

Steven is determined to heal the widening cracks between them before it's too late. And if that means presenting his grandmother with the bones of her murdered son, he'll do it.

So the boy takes the next logical step, carefully crafting a letter to Arnold Avery in prison. And there begins a dangerous cat-and-mouse game between a desperate child and a bored serial killer.

A game that will have more terrifying consequences than Steven could ever imagine...

9 out of 10

This was a really good book. Crime thrillers are my favourite genre but this approaches it from a different perspective which was fresh and different. The characters were believable and realistic. I really liked Steven Lamb and genuinely cared about him and his family and how they coped. I've been lucky enough to meet Belinda and hear her talking about her writing. I'm looking forward to reading more of her books and I highly recommend this one.
