'Belinda Bauer is one of the best British crime writers out there right now' Simon Kernick
Every killer has to start somewhere . . .
On the beaches and cliffs of North Devon, young women have become victims in a terrifying game where only one player knows the rules. And when those rules change, the new game is Murder.
But a madman on the loose feels very far from the crumbling, seaside home of ten-year-old Ruby Trick. Instead she lives in constant fear of school bullies, the dark forest, and the threat of her parents' divorce.
Helping her father to catch the killer seems like the only way to keep him close.
As long as the killer doesn't catch her first.
'Bauer's great gift is her ability to surprise the reader . . . She makes you think a bit differently about the world' Daily Telegraph
