A novel by

 
 
In April 1990, as rioters took over Strangeways prison in Manchester, someone killed a little boy at Black Moss.And no one cared. No one except Danny Johnston, an inexperienced radio reporter trying to make a name for himself.More than a quarter of a century later, Danny returns to his home city to revisit the murder that's always haunted him. If Danny can find out what really happened to the boy, maybe he can cure the emptiness he's felt inside since he too was a child.But finding out the truth might just be the worst idea Danny Johnston has ever had."As one would expect from a writer with the skill and experience of David Nolan, this haunting book deals with very difficult issues in an incredibly sympathetic manner while at the same time throwing a light onto one of the most complicated and shaming areas of our society - the failure to protect those who are the most vulnerable."David is a multi award-winning author, television producer and crime reporter. He has written a dozen books including Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil, the true story of the largest historic abuse case ever mounted by Greater Manchester Police. He presented a BBC Radio 4 documentary based on the book called The Abuse Trial. It won both the Rose D'Or and the New York International radio awards in 2016. Officers involved in the case helped David with the police procedures featured in Black Moss, particularly the way the system deals with missing children.
