The Reckoning
Young Picador, November 2010

the-reckoning

Standing on the beach watching the early morning-mist roll in off the sea, Fin is thinking about the day when he can escape to the mainland. His sister got away, but no one has heard from her in two years. Fin’s thoughts are interrupted by the sound of a car on the bridge above him. He hears doors slam, voices, a scream and then, for a brief moment, he glimpses a figure falling through the fog. It’s a young girl and she dies in Fin’s arms.

Did the dead girl jump or was she pushed? Sceptical of the official suicide verdict, Fin is determined to find the truth, a hunt that will lead him closer to his missing sister and to a shocking secret at the heart of his island community.

Praise for The Reckoning

A thriller for intelligent and sensitive teenagers … Deeply poetic and reflective, full of rich and evocative  language and concerns – family breakdown, a threatened community, racism – which haunt every generation
The Big Issue

The Reckoning is … both a tense thriller and a moving man-into-boy story
