Review

'They say dead men tell no tales, but they're wrong. Even the dead tell stories.'

When Sig Andersson is held hostage in his family's cabin in the unforgiving Alaskan wilderness - along with his father's frozen corpse – menaced by the terrifying Gunther Wolff ('You don't remember me. I remember you'), he realises his dead father had an untold story that he must piece together. It's a story about gold. And there's a gun pointed at his head.

This taught, chilling thriller is relentless.The tension is constantly maintained as past and present narratives collide. A clever and enormously compelling young adult novel from Marcus Sedgwick, Revolver won the Booktrust Teenage Prize.
