The Lovereading4Kids comment

There's no body and there's no evidence. But Fin is convinced it was murder. A fast-paced and thrilling crime tale set by the beach.

Synopsis

The Stone Balancer by John Townsend

While trying to enjoy his summer, Finn finds himself in the middle of a murder scene when balancing stones under the cliffs. Already dealing with an ill mother and a turbulent uncle, Finn suddenly has a lot more on his plate. Now it is his duty to find out exactly what went on down at his favourite part of the beach...before the worst happens.

Reviews

enjoyable to read, and even exciting at the end, and taught a concept very rarely taught, being coding for purposes other than encryption Laurie Mahon
