"Black Rabbit Summer is an intense page-turner from award-winning, young adult writer Kevin Brooks. A group of old friends, affected by drugs, alcohol, and memories, find themselves in the middle of a crime scene. Pete Boland was busy doing nothing that summer. Long, stiflingly hot, lazy days stretched ahead of him. Then she called. It was Nicole. 'Listen, Pete. . . you know that funfair, up at the recreation ground...I thought we could all meet up...you know, for old times sake.' But, where there are old times there are old tensions. And as secrets, bitterness and jealousies resurface, five old friends are plunged into the worst night of their lives. . . 'A masterly writer, and this book would put many authors of 'grown up' detective fiction to shame' Mail on Sunday 'A compulsive atmospheric mystery' Sunday Times 'Gripping, disturbing...brilliant' Sunday Express Kevin Brooks is the award-winning author of nine gripping teenage novels, usually with a thrilling detective twist.
