Blade: Closing in

Blade: Closing in

Bowler, Tim

Following the dramatic events of the first Blade book, Playing Dead, Blade is on the run again with Becky and three-year-old Jaz in tow. Now it's not just those shadowy figures from his past that are after him, it's the rest of Becky's gang too. They think Blade and Becky killed their leader, Trix, and there's no way of proving otherwise. Can Blade, Becky, and Jaz find safety together - or is there no escape from the forces closing in on them? From the Carnegie Medal-winning author of River Boy, Starseeker and Frozen Fire comes something completely different - a startlingly compelling new series. Contemporary, pacy, and utterly gripping, Blade takes you on a roller-coaster ride through the secret, dangerous life of its unforgettable narrator. This thrilling new series for teenagers combines an enormously likable and engaging central character with the harsh realities of street life and the youth gang culture that is so prevalent in today's news. The mysteries and cliffhanger endings of these short, accessible books will have the power to tempt all readers as they gradually become absorbed into Blade's dangerous world
