Publisher Description

Seventeen-year-old Veerle is bored with life in suburban Brussels. But a chance encounter with a hidden society, whose members illegally break into unoccupied buildings around the city, soon opens up a whole new world of excitement - and danger.

When one of the society's founding members disappears, Veerle suspects foul play. But nothing can prepare her for the horror that is about to unfold when an old foe emerges from the shadows... No one is safe, and The Hunter will strike again...

Author Biography

Helen Grant is a highly acclaimed YA author. Her debut novel attractied praise from critics and readers alike and was shortlisted for the CILIP Carnegie Medal.

Born in London in 1964, Helen showed an early leaning towards the arts after being told off for writing stories under the desk during maths lessons. She went on to read Classics at St Hugh's College, Oxford, and then worked in marketing for ten years to fund her love of travelling before returning to writing.

Helen now lives near Brussels with her husband, her two children and their two cats.

Review

"After her powerful debut, The Vanishing of Katharina Linden, Grant has established herself as a major talent in YA fiction and this menacing story of stalking and murder simply confirms that... Grant builds characters and tension with smooth confidence, and her dialogue is fresh and contemporary. The whole package adds up to the compulsive first adventure in a trilogy'" -- Sally Morris Daily Mail "Silent Saturday is another great book from Helen Grant, who keeps getting better and better with each book. If you enjoy YA thrillers then Silent Saturday - as for that matter her previous three books - comes highly recommended." A Fantastical Librarian "I loved Silent Saturday. I also loved Helen Grant's earlier German novels, but something tells me I love this one even more. Silent Saturday is the first of Helen's new Belgian trilogy, and if a horror thriller can be described as comfortable, then this is it . . . Go find a sofa to hide behind. Not that it will help, but you'll be under the impression that you're in control." Bookwitch
