Erased by Nick Gifford

You're not paranoid if they really are after you.

Someone is messing with Liam's world. All the rules have changed and his life has unravelled completely. He can't even trust his own memories.

What he does know is that someone is watching him. Someone thinks he's dangerous.

Liam has to fight back. There are no bystanders in this terrifying game. Only players and victims.

And Liam isn't going to be a victim.

the author says...

"I want to play mind games with you. I want to force you to doubt everything and then, when at last you feel sure, I want to pull the rug out from under your feet. Again.
   This was a tough one to write, and I was especially nervous when I sent it in to my editor at Puffin. What would she think?
   I knew I'd got it right when she e-mailed me: 'YOU ARE SERIOUSLY MESSING WITH MY HEAD! And you look such a nice, fresh-faced young man - who could guess what tortured evils lurk beneath?'
   Heh heh heh..."

what the reviewers said

"The king of children's horror..."Sunday Express

"If you're into completely out-there thrillers this is for you. Mind readers, brain implants, mad professors - this one's got the lot." Flipside Magazine

"A contemporary thriller with overtones of Orwell and Huxley about it." Rhyl Journal

"A gripping read for the older teens/young adult age range. You would not wish to swap places with Liam Connor!" Children's Books UK

"A story that genuinely chills and chafes at ethical and moral certainty... Erased is a real romp of a read. That it equips readers with an awareness of the mechanics of inhumanity must be a step towards ensuring history's mistakes are not repeated." Achukareviews

"This is a gripping thriller that draws you into the story ... Fans of the Alex Rider series will enjoy this. It's an exciting, fast paced book that will have you on the edge of your seat until the last page." Word Up
