Summer Plague

A camping holiday turns into a nightmare.

It’s 16-year-old Pauline’s first holiday without her parents and she’s spending it with two of her closest friends. The girls are looking forward to the sun, the beach, camping and cute boys. But on the very first evening, in the middle of a fiesta at the marina, pretty Leo disappears, having flirted with all sorts of characters. Thirty-six agonizing hours go by before she is found – dead; quite evidently the victim of a ritual murder. Paulina feels that the police investigation is taking the wrong track, so she sets out to look for the murderer on her own. A fatal mistake, because it looks as if Paulina is going to suffer the same fate as Leo when she finds herself locked up in a dark cellar…

A multi-layered, complex and riveting thriller for girls, described from various different perspectives.
