Odd Child Out

Gilly Macmillan

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. Detective Jim Clemo is assigned to the case. What looked like a simple case of a prank gone wrong soon escalates into a public battle. Noah is British. Abdi is a Somali refugee. And social tensions have been rapidly rising in Bristol. Against this background of fear and fury two families--and one determined detective--fight to find out the truth. Fine domestic suspense from Macmillan (What She Knew, 2016).
