Dead Man’s Cove
Winner of the Blue Peter book of the year Award
‘What I want,’ Laura declared, ‘is to have a life packed with excitement like some of the characters in my books.’
When orphaned Laura Marlin is sent to live with her uncle in St Ives, Cornwall, she is convinced that a life of adventure is hers at last. But everywhere she turns she is confronted with mysteries.
Is Tariq, the shopkeeper’s silent son, a friend or an enemy? Why does her uncle seem intent on erasing his own past? And why is everyone so afraid of Dead Man’s Cove?
