Description

Stone Cold is a Carnegie Medal-winning thriller by Robert Swindells. It is one of The Originals from Penguin – iconic, outspoken, first.

A tense thriller plot is combined with a perceptive and harrowing portrait of life on the streets as a serial killer preys on the young and vulnerable homeless. Link, aged 17, is distrustful of people until he pairs up with Deb, another homeless youngster. But what Deb doesn’t tell him is that she’s an ambitious young journalist on a self-imposed assignment to track down the killer and she’s prepared to use herself as bait …
