About the book
I would like to thank NetGalley and the author for my ARC in exchange for an honest review. Obviously I read it in English.
Twelve-year-old Paul disappears from the school, a place that should be safe for students. Only clue, a pool of blood and a writing on the wall. But the blood doesn’t belong to Paul, nor is it human but animal. Paul’s only fault? to be a Ray. And the Ray family has a history of violence, murder and madness.
In fact one of his relatives, Thomas Ray, killed a nurse, wife of ex- policeman Harry because he thought the aliens had come to get him. But his body is found hanged and mutilated and therefore it could not have been him. What lies behind this family? What other secrets can they have?
