Product description

There’s the name I was given as a baby but that’s a dronky name. Then there’s the names I make up. But there is one name I like. Everybody called me it in the old days. No one does now coz no one in this city knows it. And that’s fine. I don’t like to remember. But I do like the name. You can use it if you want. BLADE.

First in a shocking, pacy new series from Carnegie-winning author Tim Bowler, Blade: Playing Dead is a story of cruelty, courage and survival. Taking readers on a roller-coaster ride through the secret, dangerous life of its narrator, it is a thrilling and cautionary exploration of street life and the youth gang culture that is so often in the news today. Full of mysteries and cliffhanging endings to keep readers hooked, Blade is taut, tough, topical – and absolutely unstoppable.
