The Lovereading4Kids comment

The third in the Nemesis quartet, a heart-stopping and highly original crime thriller series from the award-winning and highly acclaimed author Catherine McPhail. Nemesis : Sinister Intent sees people going missing and each one of them is known by Ram; then he discovers another terrifying truth that means he’ll never be safe again... Boys in particular will be drawn to the whole package – the dramatic cover look, the short time frame in which all four thrillers are set, the short, pacy chapters, the cliff hangers and the dynamic, independent, resourceful boy hero. Nemesis is the junior Bourne Identity so fans of Robert Ludlum’s writing will appreciate just how good and suitable the Nemesis quartet is for the fans thereof.

Other books in the series include Into The Shadows, The Beast Within, and Ride Of Death.

About the Author

Cathy Macphail

Scottish author Cathy McPhail won the Kathleen Fidler Award with her novel Run Zan Run, the Scottish Arts Council Award with her second novel, Fighting Back, a Royal Mail award and the 2010 Explore Award for Roxy's Baby and the 2010 Stockport Award and Royal Mail Award for Grass. Cathy's work is enormously popular with young teenagers, her trademarks being pacy and topical storylines. Cathy lives in Greenock, Scotland.

Cathy wrote Run Zan Run after her daughter Katie was bullied at school. Cathy now loves writing for children. Asked what she'd do if she wasn't a writer, she says: "If I wasn't paid to write, I'd still write books. What do I do in my spare time? I write. What is my hobby? Writing. I just love it. So, what would I be if I wasn't a writer? Bored stiff."

Cathy is the author of the heart-stopping and highly original crime thrillers Nemesis Boys. Reluctant readers in particular will be drawn to the whole package – the dramatic cover look, the short time frame in which all four thrillers are set, the short, pacy chapters, the cliff hangers and the dynamic, independent, resourceful boy hero.

Nemesis is the junior Bourne Identity so parents who are fans of Robert Ludlum’s writing will appreciate just how good and suitable the Nemesis quartet is for their late tween and teen offspring.

Devil you know is a fast-paced teen thriller with the author’s unique brand of real-life drama and shocking twists, the action-packed story of a group of boys dealing with friendship, trust and revenge on a Glasgow estate.
