Finn Maguire's world is turned on its head when he arrives home to find his only constant family member has been murdered. A reasonably rough background gives him the wherewithal to deal with the after effects of the mess he is left to deal with on his own - something most adults wouldn't be able to cope with. Seen as more of a suspect than a victim by those who should be entrusted with looking after him in his grief, his subsequent descent into the grimy underworld of London crime to seek out the murderer is understandable. The consequences of his actions exceed the gravity of his own expectations with some unexpected twists and turns along the way.
Crusher is a fine debut novel - It is fast paced & has a plot that will keep you riveted from start to finish. It has made me want to re-read my old favourite crime thrillers, as well as seeking out more in a similar genre(YA). I will look forward to reading more from this author.
Also, given the current market trends of new books where it seems that everyone is writing about young people in a dystopian society killing each other for sport or supernatural beings coming out of the woodwork of every small town, I found Crusher to be a refreshing change from the very recent "norm".
A definite thriller, with heart.
