A CWA Dagger-winning author presents another chilling psychological thriller

A child is killed after falling from the Humber Bridge. Despite fleeing the scene, two young brothers are found guilty and sent to prison. Upon their release they are granted one privilege only, their anonymity. Probation officer Cate Austin is responsible for Humber Boy B’s reintegration into society. But the general public’s anger is steadily growing, and those around her are wondering if the secret of his identity is one he actually deserves to keep. Cate’s loyalty is challenged when she begins to discover the truth of the crime. She must ask herself if a child is capable of premeditated murder—or if there is a greater evil at play

I read this book and really enjoyed it. As I read through the book there were twists and turns that kept me hooked all the way through. i chose this book as it had roots based near where i live. This book is written in the third person point of view. It's well written and easy to follow. The book follows the story of Humber boy b who was just released from prison where he has been for the last eight years. Ben (humber boy b ) has been in prison since he was ten years old and life on the outside is scary enough as he is alone in a new town with a new identity which is necessary as the boy who died, his mother has set up a Facebook page to find him and get answers. The book also follows Cate, Ben's parole officer whose own life has not been easy and she gets some shocking news about her family.
