Non-stop tension and utterly compelling are the hallmarks of a Tim Bowler thriller; so much so, that you’ll be drawn into the characters and the story from the very start. He is pre-eminent in the field of psychological thrillers in the teenage market – no one does it better.

Our advice is read it but it might just touch too many nerves for those nearly teenage and just teenage readers. Anyway, try it and make up your own mind and if it’s just too traumatic then leave it for a while and come back to it when you’re ready. It will have been worth the wait.

Synopsis

Frozen Fire by Tim Bowler

It starts with the phone call, late at night. The mysterious boy says he is dying. Dusty doesn't want to get involved - but the boy seems to have a link to the one person who's most important to her. Soon, she has been drawn in - and has to deal with the other people who are looking for the boy - the violent man and his 2 sons, and the police too.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
