The quiet market town of Mickleburg knows very little serious crime, and local solicitor Oliver Foxton's days are occupied with wills, conveyancing, and the occasional drunk and disorderly. So when four schoolboys go on a rampage in nearby Deerton, home of his friends the Stewarts, and commit an astonishingly needless act of violence, the lives of the Foxtons and the Stewarts are shattered. Unblinkingly addressing the issues of today, Margaret Yorke has written a novel of chilling realism and once more proved herself the mistress of suspense.

'First published in1997 by Little, Brown and Company'.
