Description

James Mycroft has just left for London to investigate a car accident similar to the one that killed his parents ... without saying goodbye to Rachel Watts, his 'partner in crime'. Rachel is furious and worried about his strange behavior - not that Mycroft's ever exactly normal, but London is the scene of so many of his nightmares. So Rachel jumps on a plane to follow him ... and lands straight in a whole storm of trouble. The theft of a copy of Shakespeare's First Folio, the possible murder of a rare books conservator, and the deaths of Mycroft's parents.... Can Watts help Mycroft make sense of the three events - or will she lose him forever? Sparks fly when Watts and Mycroft reunite in this second sophisticated thriller about the teen sleuthing duo."show more

Review quote

PRAISE FOR "Every Breath" "Readers will be elated to find out that a sequel is on its way from Down Under. A smart, contemporary take on a timely classic that is sure to please Sherlock aficionados of all ages." - "Kirkus Reviews" "This story is, in part, a homage to Sherlock Holmes and follows all the traditions of a whodunit. However it's also a tale of a friendship and developing romance of two grieving teenagers. ...the author develops the characters into authentic, sympathetic individuals while keeping the mystery sustained and the plot moving forward. This is a well-written novel that should satisfy confident, thoughtful readers...." - "School Library Journal" ..".fans of the [mystery] genre will appreciate the many twists and turns that come before the final show-stopping reveal ... the Melbourne setting is vividly conveyed, including a realistically diverse cast of teen and adults. Strength of family and friends is a strong underlying theme, and the romantic tension between Rachel and Mycroft sizzles on the page. Inventive and unusual, this will appeal to readers with a taste for darker stories." - "Booklist"show more
