Book description
All is quiet at the small seaside town of Crookland Bay – except that it’s the site of a top secret Ministry of Defence research station. No one knows exactly what goes on at the research station but, one night, the horribly disfigured body of a dog washes up on the beach. Then the couple who discover the dog die in a mysterious car accident. There’s an unexpected suicide and a small vial containing a lethal substance goes missing. Trying to make sense of this horrifying series of events, the fates of Mark, Sylvia and Derek become tangled in a very dangerous game. It’s a game that becomes more deadly by the hour. This chilling novel involves experiments on animals, an MoD cover-up, and young people brave enough to risk their lives – and rash enough to risk other people’s lives – to expose the dangers.
Short-listed by the Mystery Writers of America for an Edgar award in the category of best novel for young persons 1992
