AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'It used to be called Station Road, but eight years ago things started catching fire. Then a girl was killed, and someone got smart with the name.

Now it's happening again. There's a fire. Matt Tingle and Chess Febey find a girl drowned in a pond.

Chess isn't Matt's friend. She's one of those people you get stuck with - well meaning, total liability. But she knows how to answer questions, and there are plenty of those: Why are Tara and Wando afraid? What is the meaning of the amber necklace? How can a car be blue and white at the same time?

Before they can find out who killed Debbie, Matt and Chess have to put themselves in danger, they have to look deep into themselves, and they have to reveal things about the past.'
