As regular readers of my blog already know, I moonlight over on the Mean Streets Crime Fiction Review blog – checking out thrillers and posting reviews. Last month I was lucky enough to have Simon Lelic’s forthcoming novel ‘The Child Who’ drop through my letterbox …
“A community is left reeling when twelve-year-old Daniel Blake is discovered to have brutally murdered his schoolmate Felicity Forbes.”
This is the first book I’ve read by author Simon Lelic. It’s a legal thriller tackling the shocking subject of murder of a child by a child. Usually this is not a subject matter I would pick to read about, but Lelic explores the personal and societal impact of this a horrific murder in a small community with such sensitivity that it’s hard to put the book down. It’s a classy, compelling and thought-provoking thriller – utterly superb.
