More About This Title Humber Boy B


A CWA Dagger-winning author presents another chilling psychological thriller

A child is killed after falling from the Humber Bridge. Despite fleeing the scene, two young brothers are found guilty and sent to prison. Upon their release they are granted one privilege only, their anonymity. Probation officer Cate Austin is responsible for Humber Boy B’s reintegration into society. But the general public’s anger is steadily growing, and those around her are wondering if the secret of his identity is one he actually deserves to keep. Cate’s loyalty is challenged when she begins to discover the truth of the crime. She must ask herself if a child is capable of premeditated murder—or if there is a greater evil at play.


Ruth Dugdall was a probation officer for almost a decade, working in prisons with numerous high-risk criminals. She is the author of The Sacrificial Man and The Woman Before Me.
