Somehow the boat was still afloat - another wave had lifted it clear of the first rock and was driving it further inshore. It bumped against the base of Crab Rock and skewed around, then tipped momentarily to starboard...and as it did so, she saw a figure crouching in the bottom. Hetty's always been a bit of a loner, preferring to keep to the outer edges of the close-knit island community. But when a strange woman is washed up on the shore, Hetty finds herself under increasing scrutiny from the islanders. There's a connection between Hetty and the woman that makes people suspicious, so when death comes to the community the woman is branded a bad omen and Hetty has no choice but to take matters into her own hands. As she heads out to sea, a storm is breaking and the whispers that she's heard before are louder than ever. Voices from the very depths of the sea ...and they're calling her name.

About the Author:

Tim Bowler is one of the UK's most compelling and original writers for teenagers. He was born in Leigh-on-Sea and after studying Swedish at University he worked in forestry, the timber trade, teaching and translating before becoming a full-time writer. He lives with his wife in a small village
in Devon and his workroom is an old stone outhouse known to friends as "Tim's Bolthole". Tim has written eighteen books and won fifteen awards, including the prestigious Carnegie Medal for River Boy. His most recent novel is the thrilling Buried Thunder and his provocative BLADE series is being
hailed as a groundbreaking work of fiction. He has been described by the Sunday Telegraph as "the master of the psychological thriller" and by the Independent as "one of the truly individual voices in British teenage fiction".

Review:

... evocative, mysterious new novel ... The Bookseller, Fiona Noble 'the writing is simple, straightforward and often beautiful - landscapes, characters, events are all brought vividly to life. The pacing is brilliant, too, scenes of intense activity or high emotion intercut with much slower-burning sequences ... Just as important is Bowler's understanding of how tough it is to be stuck between childhood and being an adult.' Tony Bradman, The Guardian 'Tim Bowler writes delicately about fear, loss, love, courage, and importantly, about identity. Compelling, haunting and mysterious, his books linger in readers' minds, and this is no exception.' Booktrust "...readers who appreciate the genuine gift-and-art of storytelling, impressive style of writing and a deep concept behind a wise and important story, will fall in love with this book." The School Librarian "...a young novel that mixes the realistic, the mystical and the poetic..." Irish Times
