Summary
"Dylan Kane has liked Kirsty for a long time, but he has only just found out the secret that she and her brother Tim are keeping from everyone else in school.

Tim is becoming increasingly withdrawn, and Kirsty is growing more and more worried about her little sister and her mother, who is on the verge of a breakdown. As Dylan is drawn into the maelstrom of emotion, he becomes determined to help get rid of Ian for good no matter what it takes. From the award-winning author of Lost Property and Bridge to Wisemans Cove comes a strong, gripping, powerfully moving story of a family stretched to breaking point and a portrait of a killer"--Publisher
