What does it take to catch a killer?
The day Finn Maguire discovers his dad bludgeoned to death in a pool of blood, his dreary life is turned upside down. Prime suspect in his father's murder, Finn must race against time to clear his name and find out who hated his dad enough to kill him.
Scouring the sordid, brutal London underworld for answers, exposing dark family secrets, and facing danger at every turn, Finn is about to learn that it's the people you trust who can hit you the hardest. . .
Crusher is this year's most talked-about debut thriller.
Praise for Crusher:
"Irish-born screenwriter Leonard (husband of Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James) makes his YA debut with a hard-hitting adventure that plunges its hero into a bleak, crime-ridden London . . . Leonard is clearly writing for the screen, with well-drawn action scenes, snappy patter, and a brand of noir undercoated with fast food grease . . . The thriller travels at a gripping pace, and has a thick-skinned, yet sympathetic protagonist at the head." --Publishers Weekly
