Stone Cold is an exciting and disturbing thriller by Robert Swindells.

A tense, exciting thriller combined with a perceptive and harrowing portrait of life on the streets as a serial killer preys on the young and vulnerable homeless. 17-year-old Link is distrustful of people until he pairs up with Deb, homeless like him.

But what Deb doesn't tell him is that she's an ambitious young journalist on a self-imposed assignment to track down the killer and that she's prepared to use herself as bait...Winner of the Carnegie Medal Robert Swindells lives on the Yorkshire moors and is a full-time writer.

He has won the Children's Book Award twice, for Brother In The Land and for Room 13.
