Blurb from Goodreads:  

Jess Tennant has now been living in Port Sentinel for three months, and is just beginning to relax and think of it as home after the murderous events of the summer. But in the small hours of a dark night, a teenage boy is left for dead by the side of the road. Seb Dawson has a serious head injury and may not survive - and Jess decides to find out who beat him up, and why?

As she investigates, Jess discovers that Seb was involved in some very dangerous games. A secret predator around girls, he would do whatever it took to abuse them, from lying and blackmail to spiking drinks. Could a group of vengeful victims be behind his attack? Or is there someone else with a grudge against Seb and who will stop at nothing to silence him?


My Review:

*I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Random House Children's Publishers UK and Jane Casey*

2.5/5 stars

Jess Tennant has been living in Port Sentinel for three months and is beginning to get used to life there when one night a teenage boy, Seb Dawson, is left at the side of the road seriously injured. Seb's sister asks Jess to investigate who hurt Seb.

This was an okay read. It didn't grip me but there were elements that I enjoyed. I didn't guess who had hurt Seb. 

Overall this was okay but I didn't enjoy it was much as the first book.
