Publisher's Summary

From the number one best-selling author of the confession and cowriter of Rte One's Taken Down.

Kids can be so cruel. They'll call you names. Hurt your feelings. Push you to your death.   

In the garden of an abandoned house, Luke Connolly lies broken, dead. The night before, he and his friends partied inside. Nobody fought, everybody else went home safely. And yet, Luke was raped and pushed to his death. His alleged attacker is now in custody.   

DCI Tom Reynolds is receiving the biggest promotion of his career when a colleague asks him to look at the Connolly case, believing it's not as cut and dried as local investigators have made out. 

And as Tom begins to examine the world Connolly and his upper class friends inhabited, the privilege and protection afforded to them, he too realises something.  

In this place, people cover up for each other. Even when it comes to murder.

Predictable

The narrator was great but the story was seriously lacking. I guessed who did it after a handful of scenes that featured the murderer at the beginning of the book. I preserved though as I thought i must have been wrong as I though that it couldn’t possibly be that obvious. Unfortunately it was.
