VOTED CRIME NOVEL OF THE YEAR when it was first released, and still the most gripping, powerful thriller debut you will read this year *SPECIAL EDITION* FEATURING AN EXCLUSIVE EXTRACT FROM BELINDA'S ADDICTIVE NEW NOVEL, SNAP - the book Val McDermid has hailed as the best crime novel she has read in years. Steven Lamb is 12 when he writes his first letter . . . to a serial killer Every day after school, whilst his classmates swap football stickers, twelve-year-old Steven digs holes on Exmoor, hoping to find a body. His uncle disappeared aged eleven and is assumed to have fallen victim to the notorious serial killer Arnold Avery - but his body has never been found. Steven's Nan does not believe her son is dead. She still waits for him to come home, standing bitter guard at the front window while her family fragments around her. Steven is determined to heal the widening cracks between them before it's too late - even if that means presenting his grandmother with the bones of her murdered son. So Steven takes the next logical step, carefully crafting a letter to Arnold Avery in prison. And there begins a dangerous cat-and-mouse game between a desperate child and a bored psychopath . . . *Belinda Bauer's pulse-pounding new thriller, SNAP, is available to pre-order now*

Recensioner i media

"Extraordinarily powerful and provocative... will leave you breathless" * Daily Mirror * "An excellent first novel, with a highly original plot" * The Times * "A very special debut thriller, and a clear-eyed depiction of ordinary people under extraordinary stress. This is something quite new" -- ANN CLEEVES, bestselling author of the Vera and Shetland novels "A psychological tour-de-force about the cruelty of hope and, ultimately, the triumph of innocence" * Guardian * "The reader is fully gripped... Bauer's first novel shows an extraordinary power of imagination and, vital in crime fiction, the ability to create fear and empathy in the reader" * Independent *
