Two street kids get tangled in a plot over their heads - and risk an unexpected connection - in this heart-pounding thriller by Tim Wynne-Jones.

Boy, did Blink get off on the wrong floor. All he wanted was to steal some breakfast for his empty belly, but instead he stumbled upon a fake kidnapping and a cell phone dropped by an "abducted" CEO, giving Blink a link to his perfect blonde daughter. Now Blink is on the run, but it's OK as long as he's smart enough to stay in the game and keep Captain Panic locked in his hold. Enter a girl named Caution. As in "Caution: Toxic." As in "Caution: Watch Your Step." She's also on the run, from a skeezy drug-dealer boyfriend and from a nightmare in her past that won't let her go. When she spies Blink at the train station, Caution can see he's an easy mark. But there's something about this naïve, skinny street punk, whom she only wanted to rob, that tugs at her heart, a heart she thought deserved not to feel. Charged with suspense and intrigue, this taut novel trails two deeply compelling characters as they forge a blackmail scheme that is foolhardy at best, disastrous at worst - along with a fated, tender partnership that will offer them each a rare chance for redemption.

Editorial Reviews

"Blink & Caution is a thrill ride to the end - suspenseful, heart-pounding, and with no mercy for the tenderhearted."
- Rita Williams-Garcia - Quote

"Noir crime suspense that's terrifying and authentic, and also that rare thing: deeply, intensely moving. Don't miss reading this one."
- Nancy Werlin - Quote

"Blink & Caution is a thriller and it's a love story - the first love story I've ever written, really. And it's also a story about following something that grabs you right to the end. It's about making a move to make something bad end - taking that first brave step towards changing your life. Where will it take you? Well, that's the story."
- Tim Wynne-Jones - Quote

Appropriate for ages: 13 - 17
