Overview

Callum Hughes has been labeled a killer and a psycho. He has been labeled by the press, by his classmates and most of all by the family of the boy he stabbed. Roger Gough has been labeled a victim. He is described by everyone that the police question as a sporty, funny and popular boy who was brutally murdered by Callum. At least, that’s what his friends and family are saying. But things are rarely so black and white. The coroner, Martha Gunn, a widow who is also dealing with her son moving out of the family home to attend a football academy, understands the pain of loss and the importance of justice for the dead. When Callum is found dead in his cell just two days after his arrest, it is accepted that he simply could not cope with his new environment and killed himself. Was such a timid and intelligent boy really capable of motiveless murder? Indeed, was he really capable of taking his own life?

I Love a Mystery, 2007
