A terrible virus has wiped out much of the human population and Scotland is now a wasteland, overrun by wild dogs. Toby's little sister Sylvie is dangerously ill and his family set out in a boat along the Aberdeenshire coast in desperate search of medicine. On their journey they battle for food and fuel, try to outwit lawless pirates and struggle to stay one step ahead of the ever-more powerful dogs and their mighty leader Cerberus. But will they find a cure for Sylvie before it's too late? Winner of the Kelpies Prize 2010 for new Scottish writing for children.

Having a good local author is a great luxury. Not only was the setting a great aspect of the novel, but the storyline was gripping. There was so much happening that I just wanted to keep reading on to find out what was going to happen next; it was a book I just couldn't put down.' -- Greig Torpey, aged 15, Aberdeenshire 'I thoroughly enjoyed this book... This book is great for children from 9+ who love adventure stories.' -- Harriet Johnson-Gibbs, aged 10 'An atmospheric beginning to this story hooks the reader into a tale of survival against all odds ... This is an excellent read with incisive narrative and sharp dialogue.' -- Just Imagine 'This blood pumping story gives you a rush of adrenaline and the only medicine is to read it right to the last page.' -- Owen Roberts, Carousel, Summer 2011 'This gripping story of a post-epidemic world will keep readers spellbound... The dramatic tale makes fine reading; the North Sea setting with Scots characters and dialect add interest.' -- The Yellow Brick Road 'Wow!' -- Crazed Mind
