Book blurb

Schoolboy one moment, accused terrorist the next. When his mysterious uncle is murdered, 16-year-old Will Graham is dragged into the machinations of a deranged mastermind bent on slaughter at an unfathomable scale. Hunted by authorities and killers alike, Will’s only hope is to find out why someone was so desperate to have his uncle dead, if he is to save himself, his friends and the city he calls home.

To do so, Will must draw on every scrap of intelligence he has to stay alive and out of the clutches of the police and the gunsights of the fanatic’s army of devotee killers. With the help of old friends and unexpected allies, Will believes he can work out where the madman will strike. But, massively outgunned and with the police closing in, will his chase to save his city end up dooming them all?
