Can the fragments of this mystery ever be pieced together? When a journalist and four teenagers go missing in the middle of Africa there are few clues as to what might have happened to them. Ella, the sister of one of those missing, helps Inspector Murothi follow the confusing trail in a brilliant story that is as thrilling as it is moving.

Synopsis

The Rift by Beverley Birch

In a vast African landscape four teenagers and a journalist vanish without a trace from a camp below a steep rock ridge 'Chomlaya'. As Ella, the sister of one of the missing girls, helps Inspector Murothi piece together what happened, she realises there are terrifying possibilities for her sister and the four others.

About the Author

Beverley Birch grew up in Kenya and first came to England, where she now lives with her husband and two daughters, to study for her A-levels. After completing an MA in Economics and Sociology, Beverley became an editor at Penguin. Within a few weeks she was offered the chance to work on children's books and has been involved in children's publishing - as both editor and writer - ever since. She has had over forty books published, from picture books and novels to science biographies and retellings of classic works. All her titles have received critical acclaim and her work has been translated into more than a dozen languages. Beverley spends three days a week commissioning children's fiction for Hodder, and the remainder of her time on her own writing. She is currently working on a novel for teenagers.
