Meet Garvie Smith. Highest IQ ever recorded at Marsh Academy. Lowest ever grades. What's the point, anyway? Life sucks. Nothing ever happens.

Until Chloe Dow's body is pulled from a pond.

Or does he?

Review:

"A superb crime thriller" (The Bookseller)

"Arresting, original teen detective novel" (Metro)

"The writing is excellent, and the story calls into being a very recognisable 21st-century urban world with a dash of social commentary, especially on relationships between adults and teenagers." (Tony Bradman Guardian)

"Schoolboy sleuth Garvie is hugely appealing in a nihilistic sort of way (think Lisbeth Salander or Jesse Pinkman) . . ." (Charlotte Norman, Waterstone's Bath Waterstones' bookseller)

"A fantastic book with examples of the best and worst of human nature, and everything in between." (Clare Maltby The Bookseller)

Book Description:

The first book in a fantastic new crime series for young adults (and adults) starring the elusive, laid-back, devastatingly attractive, Garvie Smith.
