Book description
Everton Khoter is a young man on death row. In nineteen days, he will be executed for murder. But Luke Harding has been tipped off that he is innocent. The Authorities are against reopening the case but, at Luke’s own risk, he does. Against the ticking clock, Luke and Malc try to piece together the truth that The Authorities failed to find. And they try to overturn a mountain of forensic evidence that seems to prove Everton’s guilt, while they are supposed to be investigating a case of corruption in ‘pairing’. In the Traces world, couples are worked out and brought together by The Authorities. It’s a system that Luke hates because it stops him getting together with his girlfriend, Jade. He finds himself investigating a pairing system that he’d love to destroy. But, as a forensic investigator, he can’t uphold the law and break it at the same time.

‘Through attention to the smallest detail and cleverly written description, Malcolm Rose leads his reader into a parallel world that is both fascinatingly different and chillingly realistic. This is another book that could be included in a teacher’s arsenal when trying to encourage boys to read. Let’s face it, what self-respecting 12-year-old wouldn’t want an all-knowing robot side kick like Malc? This is a well written, fast paced action thriller with a thoroughly likeable hero that will keep the reader turning the pages right to the end.’ Write Away website.
