There''s been a murder, but the police don''t care. It was only a homeless old man after all.

Kieran cares. He''s made a promise, and when you say something out loud, that means you''re going to do it, for real. He''s going to find out what really happened. To Colin. And to his grandma, who just stopped coming round one day. It''s a good job he''s a master of observation, and knows all the detective tricks of the trade. But being a detective is difficult when you''re Kieran Woods. When you''re amazing at drawing but terrible at fitting in. And there are dangerous secrets everywhere, not just outside, but under your own roof. An evocative and compelling debut about a brave, selfless and very different schoolboy detective.
