'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.
