**DEBUT FICTION** "Admit how your pulse quickens when you see those headlines: murder spree of schoolgirl loner; boy, 13, rapes classmate; child, 10, stabs pensioner." So says narrator Anita Naidu, and she should know. At thirteen, Anita was the sole witness to London’s notorious cave murders of 1986, which left three children dead. Told seven years later to the police psychologist who interviewed her at the time of the killings, Anita’s story reveals the savagery of the schoolyard one chilling detail at a time until the truth of what actually happened reveals itself with startling ferocity. Set against the bustling, tourist-packed streets of historic Greenwich, this novel examines sinister events that happen, quite literally, right below the surface.

An audacious debut, The Dead of Summer is written in spare, evocative prose with remarkable psychological acuity and the daring to examine the dark, intensely fragile point between childhood and adolescence, and the morbid impulses of those mutable years.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for The Dead of Summer  "The Dead of Summer is like an addiction – so impossible to put down, it’s consumed far too soon. Camilla Way weaves an inexorable web of innocent love and evil, tightening the strands until there is no room to move, no hope of escape."
-- Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean

"Like Patrick McCabe's The Butcher Boy, Camilla Way's The Dead of Summer is a tricky, twisted peek into the secret world of children. As relentless as it is intimate, this is a truly compelling debut."—Stewart O’Nan, author of The Speed Queen

"The Dead of Summer is a riveting and remarkable debut novel. With a voice that is both charming and chilling, Camilla Way skillfully illuminates the tortured lives and twisted psyches of three teenage misfits in 1980s London--and delivers a literary page-turner of the highest order."--Amanda Filipacchi, author of Love Creeps

"The Dead of Summer is economical, compelling and, in the end, pays off beautifully with a twist that will both surprise and haunt you for weeks after you put the book down."--Cammie McGovern, author of Eye Contact and Art of Seeing.

"Sharply written with a haunting voice, The Dead of Summer is a powerful and gripping debut.--Colleen Curran, author of Whores on the Hill
