Blade: Playing Dead by Tim Bowler
Published: May 2009
Nobody knows the city like Blade. You have to when you're on your own, when you can't trust anyone, when you've got a past you need to hide. Blade is practically invisible, perfectly alone, living only by his wits just the way he likes it. Until the day a chance encounter sends his world crashing down around him and he finds himself on the run again. Yet he's not alone this time. Suddenly he's got Becky and her daughter, Jaz, weighing him down. But is he running from his past or from Becky's? Blade knows he should drop these two, but he can't. With people depending on him, he'll need to find a way to outsmart the thugs who are hot on both of their heels, lurking around every corner.
The suspense is palpable in Carnegie-Medal winner Tim Bowler's new thriller.
