The electrifying new thriller from Sunday Times bestselling author, Simon Toyne.

Only one boy can see the darkness. Only one man can save him from it.

A murder

An elderly tailor is found tortured and murdered in the ancient town of Cordes. Written in blood beside the body are the words: FINISHING WHAT WAS BEGUN.

A secret

But the dead man has left a cryptic message for his granddaughter and her son, Leo - one that puts them in immediate danger.

A race

They are forced to go on the run, accompanied by the enigmatic Solomon Creed. What began as small-town murder becomes a race to uncover a devastating secret dating from World War II. The few men who know the truth are being killed by a powerful organization, and only one man stands in its way.

Only Solomon Creed can stop the murders.

Only he can save the boy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Wow, what a book. I thought it was powerful and innovative, a riveting blend of action and quest that takes the thriller into territory where thrillers rarely venture' - Andrew Taylor, bestselling author of The American Boy and The Ashes of London

'Tense, nail-biting and exciting. The Boy Who Saw is a heart-in-the-mouth race against time thriller and I couldn't put it down. Solomon Creed is one hell of a hero and Simon Toyne is one hell of a writer' - C L Taylor

'Tense, intriguing, mysterious ... everything you could want in a thriller. Toyne has done it again' - Paul Finch, Bestselling author of Strangers

'Emotionally powerful, utterly engaging, beautifully layered, Simon Toyne's new series takes thriller writing to another level. Give me more Solomon Creed!' - Sarah Pinborough, author of Behind Her Eyes

'The Boy Who Saw is the Pandora's Box of books - once opened it cannot be closed. Toyne's writing brings effortless fluency combined with heart-pounding action. Readers beware ... this is a glorious terror of a tale' - Helen Fields
