Billy Zeets has a story to tell.
About being a vandal and petty thief.
About missing boys and an elusive killer.
And about what happens if a boy who breaks all the rules is the only person who can piece together the truth.

Editorial Reviews

Finalist for the Edgar Award for Best Young Adult Mystery Flawed but observant and courageous, Billy and his taut storytelling will engage readers of all stripes." -Kirkus "Turner does a superlative job of developing the distinct and sonorous voice of a troubled teen. Teen fans of suspense, atypical protagonists, and thrillers will be engaged by this unique novel." -VOYA "Turner's debut exerts a strong pull, and Billy's is a real struggle with real consequences? a compelling, offbeat tale." -Publishers Weekly "Knowing from the first page that Billy survives his ordeal in no way detracts from the tension of his tale, and the gruesomeness of the murders? is harrowing? Billy's closing remarks on the terror he'll keep buried inside forever suggest that the Zeets' turnaround has come at a high price." -Bulletin "
