Product description

Winner of the Carnegie Medal 2014

Cult stuff like only Kevin Brooks can do it. Lord of the Flies in a locked room. One way in. No way out. Blacker and stranger than salty licorice. You would never get into a stranger’s van, would you? But the blind man tricked Linus. He can’t believe he fell for it. He just wanted to give him a hand. Now he’s a prisoner. Six little rooms. No windows. No doors. He’s all alone – so far. What is the man going to do to Linus? What is Linus going to do? Sometimes your worst nightmare comes true. Then you have to find a way to survive. Kevin Brooks has stunned us so many times: with Martyn Pig. With Black Rabbit Summer. But this is his knock-out blow. Our heads are still spinning.
