Quarry

Someone wants Scrappy to jump off a cliff…

Who is texting freaky dares to Scrappy? The anonymous sender can’t be traced. At first, Scrappy thinks it’s a mate having a laugh. At any rate, life just got more exciting. But then the dares become creepy – and increasingly deadly. Whoever this is can’t be a friend. Someone knows all the secrets of Scrappy’s troubled family life, and is luring him into a fatal trap. But now it’s too late to stop… Written with dizzying tension which builds to an ear-splitting howl of panic, this paralysing new thriller from award-winning author Ally Kennen is a masterpiece of psychological suspense.

Praise for Ally Kennen:

“Kennen has a hotline to all that is funniest, craziest, most dangerous and most creative about troubled teenagers.” The Times

“A hot paced, nail-chewing thriller with great style and a wicked wit.” Guardian on “Bedlam”
