By Denis Martin

**eBook Edition** Surviving this town is going to be murder.

Cully thinks life in small-town Cooksville will be quiet. Then he meets Kat – athletic, stunning, intriguing. But something is going on with her. Cully knows he should stay out of it, but he can’t. Now Kat and Cully are caught in the middle of a deadly web, and it’s too late to hide from those who hunt them. Surviving this town is going to be murder. Marked is a gripping young adult novel by New Zealand author Denis Martin. This fast-paced book combines the mystery and action of a psychological thriller with real-life teen issues of bullying and relationship angst. Short-listed for the 2012 LIANZA Young Adult Fiction Award, this is one story that will grip readers to the last page. “A great read for teenagers looking for a fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat thriller.” The Bay Chronicle “Kiwi author Denis Martin has come up trumps with another thriller … Combining the fiction of mystery and action – guns and abductions – with real-life teen problems of bullying and relationship angst, this is a great choice.” Canvas Weekend Herald “Denis Martin keeps the reader in this novel with hooks at the end of each chapter and an easy style. Compulsive reading.” Bobs Books Blog “Gripping and funny.” New Zealand Books “Twists and turns in the life-and-death plot make this first-person narrative a page-turner, with the reader as much in the dark as Cully right up to the last pages.” New Zealand Listener “This is an excellent story … I can happily recommend this book to young teenagers as a good yarn.” Jane Croft Book Reviews
