Synopsis

Nemesis 1: Into The Shadows by Catherine Macphail

Ram has no memory of who he is. He wakes up in a darkened corridor of a tower block with no idea of how he got there. And then the lift doors nearby open and inside is a man, lying in a pool of blood, desperately trying to tell him something. Ram is now the murder suspect and on the run from the police, but there’s also something in the shadows that he’s even more fearful of.

About the Author

Catherine Macphail

Scottish author Catherine McPhail won the Kathleen Fidler Award for her first novel, Run Zan Ran, which she wrote after her daughter Katie was bullied at school. Catherine now loves writing for children.

Asked what she'd do if she wasn't a writer, she says: "If I wasn't paid to write, I'd still write books. What do I do in my spare time? I write. What is my hobby? Writing. I just love it. So, what would I be if I wasn't a writer? Bored stiff. "

Catherine is the author of the heart-stopping and highly original crime thrillers Nemesis Boys in particular will be drawn to the whole package – the dramatic cover look, the short time frame in which all four thrillers are set, the short, pacy chapters, the cliff hangers and the dynamic, independent, resourceful boy hero.

Nemesis is the junior Bourne Identity so parents who are fans of Robert Ludlum’s writing will appreciate just how good and suitable the Nemesis quartet is for their late tween and teen offspring.
