Slick, gritty, electrifying drama from BAFTA award-winning writer, Chris Ould. He's fast becoming the freshest blood in YA crime fiction. This is a new series with 16 year old protagonists who are trainee police officers facing crime situations for the first time. The storylines are hard-hitting and challenging and Chris Ould does not shy away from the stark realities of youth crime.

Warning: Contains explicit language and content and we recommend it only for 15+ readers.
