R Steven is determined to heal the widening cracks between them before it's too late even if that means presenting his grandmother with the bones of her murdered sonSo Steven takes the next logical step carefully crafting a letter to Arnold Avery in prison And there begins a dangerous cat and mouse game between a desperate child and a bored psychopath Belinda Bauer's pulse pounding new thriller SNAP is available to pre order n. A Belinda Bauer book has been on my radar for uite some time and here I am after finishing her debut Blacklands It was worth the wait I m happy to say I m blown away by her style of writing I ve held off giving 5 stars because I think there may well be even better to comeThe story is one of a young boy Steven Lamb growing in a small village near Exmoor His uncle had been at roughly the same age as Steven is now when he had been murdered eighteen years earlier The body never recovered was thought to have been disposed of somewhere on the moors We then have the perpetrator Arnold Avery a paedophile who had been caught whilst trying to molest a young boy and subseuently convicted of the murders of other children and Steven s brother What follows is a two handed story of Steven and Arnold On the one hand we have a coming of age story with Steven in his struggle to comprehend everything that has gone on before and since and how he feels he can make things right better even for himself and mostly for his family And on the other we have an insight into Arnold s world which I know many would find difficult to read and go there to What I think is brilliantly done is how Ms Bauer is able to tell the tale from a 12 year old s point of view some of his decision making would have been really uestionable had he been much older but from a child felt much believable And though the paedophilia is dark and an area no one particularly wants to think about it s handled with touches of lightness and dexterity and is not gruesome or graphic Disturbing yes but handled well in my opinion The strength of the book for me was the language used in the storytelling beautiful prose excellent descriptiveness and characterisation A real sense of place with the moors taking centre stage which in turn made the whole thing feel suitably claustrophic and bleak with touches of light dappling throughIt s strange I know to say I enjoyed a book that features such a subject matter but I did I enjoyed the writing Steven s journey and how a young boy went to tremendous lengths to try and improve his life and those of his loved ones A sad but ultimately transitionary tale that I would highly recommend if you can get past this particular kind of darkness

    This book was just okay I wasn't invested in the story so much as I thought the writing style was a little bit basic and at times I thought some scenes were a bit unrealistic On a positive note the ideas were good lots of interesting things were going on with the young boy Stephen writing to a serial killer in prison and what leads on from it it just wasn't for me I'd give 25 star rating
