Best friends Noah Sadler and Abdi Mahad have always been inseparable. But when Noah is found floating unconscious in Bristol's Feeder Canal, Abdi can't--or won't--tell anyone what happened. Noah is British. Abdi is a Somali refugee. Social tensions have been rising rapidly in Bristol UK. Against this background of fear and fury two families fight for their sons and for the truth. Neither of them know how far they will have to go, what demons they will have to face, what pain they will have to suffer. The book is told from multiple POVs and the plot is slowly laid out as you watch how their friendship got to this place. I'm looking forward to Gilly's next book as I enjoyed her writing. Recommended. ( )

I found this one to be quite a bit slower than the previous Jim Clemo book. Still interesting, but not as thrilling or suspenseful. ( )

I'll get the first book in this series. It's a good read. ( )

It’s about two young boys who are best friends. One is sick with cancer, and the other is Somalian who discovered a deep family secret. Not a fan of the book, it was alright. I enjoyed the twist part regarding Abdi’s family and I liked the society stance on immigration ( )

This book tells of a friendship between Noah Sandler and Abdi Mahad. Noah is dying of cancer, but hasn’t yet told his best friend, Abdi of his imminent death. Abdi is dealing with a secret of his own. One night, after a photo exhibition of Somalian refugee camps taken by Noah’s father, Abdi (of Somalian descent) and Noah go out, and Noah nearly drowns. He is taken to the hospital, unconscious, but Abdi won’t talk. Detective Inspector Jim Clemo is given the case. There are many secrets in this novel and they threaten to destroy families. It is set in Bristol. ( )
