Like everyone reading the newspapers these days, 11-year-old Barney Roberts knows the killer will strike again soon. The victim will be another boy, just like him. There will be no clues for the London detectives to find. There will be no warning about who will be next. There will be no real reason for Barney's friend and neighbor, Lacey Flint, on leave from her job as a London police detective, to become involved...and no chance that she can stay away. Heart-pounding suspense from the author of Dead Scared (2012).
