A man is dead. A woman is missing . And the police have already found their suspect. …
Owen Hall drives into a petrol station to let his passenger use the facilities. She never comes back -and what’s more, it seems she never even made it inside.
When he raises a fuss, the police are called ,and soon identify Owen himself as a possible culprit – not least because they already have him in the frame for a more sinister crime.
Owen’s always been a little different, and before long others in the community are baying for his blood. But this is a case where nothing is as it seems -least of all Owen Hall .
Firstly thank you to emily at Bonnier Zaffre books for my review copy.
The book looks striking and I guarantee will be catching lots of readers attention on the shelves . I haven’t read his debut book The hidden legacy but can see there’s a lot of praise for it .
As a mum to two children on the spectrum I could see many similarities in Owen. Was he capable of committing a terrible crime?
Admittly I was a bit confused with the ending …as there was a lot going on at once with a variety of characters.
However well written and enjoyed reading the different narratives as they each bring a unique voice to the story.
