Why should the man who killed Joe's father be walking around as if nothing happened? Loathing and anger build up so much inside Joe that he begins a secret campaign against Mr. Moss, his father's killer. He starts with spying, but then goes further: a scratch on the side of his car, anonymous hate mail, a little graffiti. Nothing major, but just enough for Mr. Moss to know someone is watching-all the time.

An engrossing look at the anger that comes with grief, this novel was shortlisted for the Guardian Award for Children's Literature in England.
