Danny Anderson, 15, discovers that freedom from his mum is not the same as freedom from fear in a fast-paced thriller of mystery, deception, murder, and redemption.
Colin Moody, veteran of Australian stage productions and television, captures the scousisms (accent and attitude) of a true Liverpudlian in his performance of Mark Roberts' work, which was short-listed for Britain's prestigious 2005 Angus Book Award for young adult novels. Tension begins when, four hours after his last fight with his mother, Danny is picked up by a 19-year-old flush with money and success. It never lets up as people begin to die along a wild road trip through the English countryside, and identifying hero from villain becomes increasingly complex.
"Fast paced and grabs your attention quickly... all the way through." (www.cool-reads.co.uk)
