A heart-thumping, action-thriller for teens that will compel readers to keep turning the pages until the very end. Greg and his friends, Pip and Rikkers, 'borrow' a dinghy from a boat yard to go out joyriding one night. On their return they stumble upon a group of men stealing expensive equipment from the boat yard and flee in fear, luckily unnoticed (or so they think). Not wanting to get in trouble for their own misdemeanour, they decide not to go to the police about what they've seen. However a few weeks later, during a similar robbery at another boat yard, someone is murdered. By this time Greg and Rikkers have discovered who the members of the gang are - it includes kids from school and a terrifying tattooed bikie known only as BP. Unfortunately for Greg, BP has realised that Greg knows more then he should. This menacing figure is determined to teach him to mind his own business. Once again Martin has produced a gripping page-turner with all the hallmarks that made Face It and Playing for Keeps so popular - vivid imagery, menacing characters, drug trafficking, murder, a car chase and general brutality, not to mention a bit of romance.
