Sticks and stones will break your bones... A powerfully gripping thriller from 'one of the most exciting writers to have emerged in Britain for years' Ian Rankin.
In Glasgow, a child goes missing, taken from the front garden of his home - and the investigation leads the police to the doors of two young boys. Paddy Meehan has just started her new job working for a local newspaper, where she dreams of becoming an investigative journalist. She starts looking into the case of the missing child but, unlike everyone else, does not believe the boys acted on their own. Convinced there is more to it than this, she begins to ask some very awkward questions. But Paddy's investigation has repercussions she never anticipated. Shunned by those closest to her, she finds herself dangerously alone...
'Her characters breathe with an almost Dickensian life. '
