A stunning companion piece from award-winning Anthony McGowan.
When two brothers Nicky and Kenny see a golden glint at the bottom of the pond, they're desperate to get it – and the cash they think will come with it – until local gangsters get involved.
Nicky and Kenny return in Pike as a fishing expedition nosedives into near tragedy.
The Bacon Pond is famous for its monster-sized fish and Kenny is determined to catch one. And as usual, Nicky is dragged along for the ride.
But when the boys glimpse what could be a body in the water - the body of a well-known local criminal who's just been announced missing - the secrets of the Bacon Pond might just take them all down.
Sometimes it's better not to look too deep.
A poignant and powerful sequel to Carnegie longlisted Brock.
Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+.
