An absorbing and fast-paced thriller
Sam Tennant has been brutally murdered in an online
computer game. What’s worse, it looks like his killers are out
to get him in real life too. ‘The Emperor’ and ‘Ollyg78’ say they
know him from school, and soon turn his classmates against
him with their vindictive website.
With his father away, his mother preoccupied with a particularly
difficult work case, and his dying granddad absorbed in some
dark, wartime secrets of his own, Sam’s only support comes
from terminally shy Abby and Stephen the class nerd.
As the threats become more sinister, Sam faces a desperate
struggle to identify his persecutors before things really get
'An exciting story that covers a serious topic in a way that readers will appreciate. A thriller that keeps on going right to the end.'
'A great book for children and practically required reading for parents.'
'This is a multi-layered story . . . Packham gets across brilliantly the feelings of isolation and fear that Sam experiences. The action unfolds so quickly, but lucidly and logically, that the reader struggles to catch his breath and realise the significance of small deeds as each page turns. It's a cracking good read.'
'Modern and thought-provoking … shows the darker side of peer pressure and social networking.'
New Zealand Herald
'A disturbing and revealing look at the current trend of cyber-bullying … a terrific gripping and multi-layered story which will stay with the reader for a long time.'
