From Kevin Brooks, a "thrilling, gritty story" (Kirkus) that "grabs and holds readers' attention from its very first chapter" (PW, starred review), now in a dynamic new Kevin Brooks paperback look. On a storm-ravaged night, a 19-year-old girl is kidnapped, raped, and killed. Three days later, her two younger brothers set out in search of her murderer. Cole, 17, is a dark-eyed devil who doesn't care if he lives or dies, while Ruben, 14, is a strange child who sometimes, inexplicably, experiences sensations above and beyond his own. This is the story of the boys' journey from their half-gypsy home on a London junk lot to the ghostly moors of Devon, where they hope and fear to find the truth about their sister's death. It's a long road, cold and hard and violent. It's THE ROAD OF THE DEAD.

Review: The Road of the Dead

User Review  - Maritza Ramos - Goodreads

This book is the one of the best books I had read so far! Suspense, thriller, and crime all in one book well, in my opinion. Trying to find your sisters murderer is one thing but going somewhere you don't know about and what to expect is another. This book is one to keep reading for. Read full review
