Product description

Marlon is meant to be the good kid. (Read: not cool enough, not clever enough, not street enough.) He’s promised his mum he’ll never follow his big brother, Andre, down the wrong path. Until now, it’s been easy. So how’s he ended up being hunted in an urban gang’s turf war? It’s a date that goes wrong; a date that ends in tragedy. Suddenly Marlon finds himself hunted by a scary gang. They’re after the mysterious Mr Orange – and they’re going to use Marlon to get to him. Marlon’s out of choices. He’s got to become what he hates, to protect the people he loves…
