 How well do you know the people you love…?

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.

Just back from a mandatory leave following his last case, Detective Jim Clemo is now assigned to look into this unfortunate accident.  But tragedy strikes and what looked like the simple case of a prank gone wrong soon ignites into a public battle.  Noah is British.  Abdi is a Somali refugee.   And social tensions have been rising rapidly in Bristol.  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.

Because the truth hurts.

I read this book a year or so ago. Enjoyed it as the story line is different from what I normally read. It is about the friendship of two young boys that have a lot of interest in common. What happens when on boys decides to kill himself.

This book picks up right where What She Knew left off with DI Clemo having finished his therapy and heading back to work. I didn't really like the Clemo character in What She Knew but I warmed to him a little more in this book as his character was given more dimension and insight. There are no big plot twists or surprises in this book; a steady flow of breadcrumbs lets you figure it all out.
