Murder in Midwinter
Publisher: Nosy Crow
Maya is on the bus home from school in London when she spots a man and a woman arguing on the street, and the man is holding a gun. She takes a photograph with her phone – and he sees her do it.
The next day a body is found in the River Thames, and he looks a lot like the man with the gun.
Is Maya a witness to a terrible crime? Fearing for her safety, the police send her away to stay on her aunt’s farm in the Welsh mountains. But will she be safe even there, surrounded by snow?
This is a fast-paced story with nail-biting action, a mystery to solve, and a heart-racing finish. A thrilling read; you’ll be clinging to the sides of your chair by the end.
