Safe House

My latest read??? Safe House by James Heneghan. I am not exactly sure what to say about this one (I know, not like me!!), but I am really riding the fence. I liked the background info. I learned about Northern Ireland and the fighting between the Protestants and Catholics - I guess I wasn't aware to what extreme people would go. Liam, the twelve year old main character, witnesses his parents' murder and now is the murderer's next target. The book is a constant, tense, trying-to-get-away on Liam's part from The Mole, the man trying to kill him. I thought it was very intense - and it wasn't something I wanted to read right before bed!! What I didn't like is that it seemed that all he did was run, he could never seem to elude The Mole, and that seemed not-so-believable to me. If you are looking for a fast-paced novel, this may be it, but don't expect any shocking turn-of-events.
