Longlisted for the UKLA 2018 Book Award

Meet Garvie Smith. Reprobate, genius, waster, and sometime detective. Right in the middle of revision hell - until now. A boy from Marsh Academy has been shot, with no clear motive and no clues. Disgraced DI Singh is on the case, and he's determined to keep Garvie away. But Garvie knows he's the only one who has any idea where to look for the answers. Starting with his best friend's girlfriend. And it's going to take more than pointless revision or flunking his exams to stop him getting involved. Exams. What exams?

Synopsis

Kid Got Shot by Simon Mason

A brand new and intriguing Garvie Smith mystery, featuring the same brilliant characters and dry humour as Costa Prize-shortlisted Running Girl.

Reviews

Praise for Running Girl:

Sassily written, it is driven irresistibly forward by a twisty mystery. - Sunday Times

***** - Telegraph

There's never been a school-age sleuth quite like the excellent Garvie Smith - Guardian

A clever crime novel which keeps you guessing until the very last page - The Bookseller
