Hear the Dead Cry

Charlie Price

About the book

The cemetery I know best is Forest Grove. I spend most of my time there. That's where most of my friends are . . . The ones my age and the children, they almost all need someone to talk to. They weren't ready. They'll tell you that.

Murray doesn't have many friends at school. A quiet loner with a troubled family life, he spends all his time down at Forest Grove cemetery, speaking to the dead and listening to their stories.

When he hears a terrified new voice pleading for help, Murray is convinced it is Nikki, a popular young cheerleader who went missing over a month ago - but who will believe him? And where is the body?

Together with Pearl, the daughter of the cemetery groundskeeper, Murray must struggle to uncover the truth in a town full of secrets.
