I know I has special needs. So does Stanley and Francis and Billy and Josh. People dont listen to us, cause they thinks were thick in our heads.

Charlie works at St Patricks residential home, where the walls are so thick no one can hear you cry. Hes asking child protection expert Shane Dunphy for help, before someone gets murdered.

Charlie tells him of mistreatment, brutality and random cruelty, and now Maisie, his girlfriend, a resident at the home, has gone missing. When Shane finds out what has happened to Maisie, he knows hes uncovered a world of trouble.

Shane works his connections and, together with the ingenuity of the care home residents, attempts to subvert and infiltrate the system and bring the guilty to justice.


My thoughts…

This book is a real page turner! Right from the very first page it will grab you!

I love how shane narrates the story! He’s really great at voicing all of the characters in his stories. I always love it when authors read their own books.

This book is about people with special needs, about a residential setting where they live, and about the cruelty and brutality of one man who works with the residents.

It is book 3 of shane’s stories from the margins series, these books are set in ireland, and are true stories. Shane is a former child protection worker, and now he’s a journalist and a lecturer, he has written many books over the years.

His stories from the margin series is about marginalised people in ireland, and they are really great!

I would highly recommend this book! I promise you won’t be disappointed!
