In the intense August heat, three local kids, Matthew, Andy and Josh, spend their time exploring the woods and secret places of Deloume Road and ignoring the ghostly boy Miles Ford, who's almost invisible anyway.
Soon though, a chance discovery sets off a terrible sequence of events, forever entwining these young lives with that of Gerard Deloume, the town's long-dead founder... Winner of the Guardian Not-The-Booker Prize and the Greene & Heaton Prize for Best Novel.
