Review by Bellydancer
After the death of her young brother from a fall, Amber takes it upon herself to find her brother’s murderer. Could her father’s non compliance to fill full his debt pay-back be the reason for Connors death?Befriended by a cop and a journalist, Amber uncovers the motive for her brother’s death and she wants to take maters into her own hands. A meeting is set up but things take a turn for the worse, leaving Amber in grave danger. An edgy crime thriller for teens, filled with tough-talking and a no-nonsense writing style. Protagonist, Amber is a gutsy and bold character from London’s tower block estates, giving her a colourful, although sensitive nature. Ashley has a way with story endings and this one will have you on the edge of your seat.
