When Mr Bennett, Head Teacher of Trenwith High School, dies in mysterious circumstances, suspicion falls on 18 year old JOE MERCER. Joe is the epitome of a young hooligan-permanently excluded from Trenwith High School, always hiding behind his hoodie, except for when he's hooning around on his motor bike. Then it's his full-face helmet that provides his camouflage. But did he really do it? His best friends, SEB HOWELL, whose smile can make girls lose their balance, and Seb's girlfriend EMILY BENNETT, the head teacher's daughter, think not and set out to prove him innocent.

Rachel Watts is suffering from recurring nightmares about her near-death experience in London. She just wants to forget the whole ordeal, but her boyfriend, James Mycroft, is obsessed with piecing the puzzle together and anticipating the next move of the mysterious Mr Wild - his own personal Moriarty.

So when Rachel's brother, Mike, suggests a trip back to their old home in Five Mile, Rachel can't wait to get away. Unfortunately it's not the quiet weekend she was hoping for with the unexpected company of Mike's old school buddy, the wildly unreliable Harris Derwent.

The Cartographer

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
Crime Fiction

Melbourne, 1959. An 11-year-old boy witnesses a murder as he spies through the window of a strange house. God, whom he no longer counts as a friend, obviously has a pretty screwed-up sense of humour: just one year before, the boy had looked on helplessly as his twin brother, Tom, suffered a violent death.
