Ciaran Bain is a criminal with a special talent: he can read minds. But his skill comes at a price.

Lucy's sister is dead: killed for a secret Ciaran's family wants buried. Her sister's blood is on Ciaran's hands.

Only together can the unlikely allies discover the deadly secret.

They can run but where can they hide if they aren't safe, even in their own minds?


'Pacey, compelling and mind-bending in all the right ways as the deceitful truth gets unravelled. It's an excellent showcase for the new KelpiesTeen list.'
-- Keith Gray, The Scotsman

'Deceit, intrigue and mind-reading make up the basis of the plot for this exciting and fast paced novel... This book is a real roller coaster
ride of emotions and plot twists.'
-- The School Librarian

'Don builds a slow but tightly constructed bond between Bain and Lucy, anchoring the action-packed plot with their relationship, detailed between alternating perspectives... Come for the mind-reading spies; stay for the unlikely duo that's unable to trust each other.'
-- Kirkus Reviews

'Very, very exciting, and the reasons behind all this cloak and dagger stuff makes for good thinking material... This is your classical chase, but with a twist. It's weird and dangerous, and there can be no happy ending. You still hope, though. I'd happily read more like this.'
-- Bookwitch

'The plot was often tense and some of the scenes had me on the edge of my seat... I will definintely read more books written by Lari Don because I really enjoyed this one.'
-- Tahiya, Craigmount High pupil, Teen Titles
