Prize-winning crime writer Anne Cassidy packs a punch in this latest volume of her gripping series The Murder Notebooks. Joshua and Rose, not related but increasingly linked through the relationship between their missing father and mother respectively, are desperate to find out what has happened to their parents. Trying to follow any clues has so far proved terrifyingly dangerous and this latest instalment is no different. When Joshua’s friend is fatally stabbed the reality of the danger they are in is clear. But will they stop asking the questions they so desperately want answered? The determination of two teenagers with no idea who they can trust is brilliantly captured in this hard hitting novel. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

Butterfly Grave by Anne Cassidy

Joshua's uncle has survived a near fatal accident and Rose and Joshua drive to Newcastle to visit him, along with their friend Skeggsie. Joshua is convinced they are being followed. Can it be true, or is it just his paranoia? Rose and Joshua do not know who to trust - even Joshua's uncle has a dark past, touched by murder. And then the precious murder notebooks are stolen and it is Skeggsie who pays the price for Rose and Joshua's so-called meddling. Somebody out there really does not want Rose and Joshua to find their parents. But who? And why?

A taut and pacy thriller, perfect for teens.
