Publisher's Summary

How well do you know the people you love?

Best friends Noah Sadler and Abdi Mahad have always been inseparable. But when Noah is found floating unconscious in Bristol's Feeder Canal, Abdi can't - or won't - tell anyone what happened.

Just back from a mandatory leave following his last case, Detective Jim Clemo is now assigned to look into this unfortunate accident. But tragedy strikes, and what looked like the simple case of a prank gone wrong soon ignites into a public battle. Noah is British. Abdi is a Somali refugee. And social tensions have been rising rapidly in Bristol. Against this background of fear and fury, two families fight for their sons and for the truth. Neither of them knows how far they will have to go, what demons they will have to face, what pain they will have to suffer.

Because the truth hurts.

Wow!

A well written mystery, with characters interesting and complex. Background stories of both main characters add depth to this excellent book. I fully enjoyed this book.
