White Rabbit, Red Wolf

By Tom Pollock

Sometimes, courage is just knowing what you're more afraid of.

A taut thriller about murder, maths and the mind. Peter Blankman is afraid of everything but must confront truly unimaginable terror when his mother is attacked. Seventeen-year-old Peter Blankman is a maths prodigy. He also suffers from severe panic attacks. Afraid of everything, he finds solace in the orderly and logical world of mathematics and in the love of his family: his scientist mum and his tough twin sister Bel, as well as Ingrid, his only friend. However, when his mother is found stabbed before an award ceremony and his sister is nowhere to be found, Pete is dragged into a world of espionage and violence where state and family secrets intertwine. Armed only with his extraordinary analytical skills, Peter may just discover that his biggest weakness is his greatest strength.

  • Both an intelligent, shocking and tightly plotted psychological thriller and a revealing exploration of mental health. The Curious Incident meets The Bourne Identity.
  • Tom is an ambassador and blogger for TalkLife, the peer support network for youth mental health.
  • This is Tom's first book for teenagers, following his acclaimed urban fantasy trilogy. Of the first in the trilogy, The City's Son, Publishers Weekly said: "Gorgeously written and brimming with bizarre urban creatures, this darkly imagined and sometimes painful tale should delight fans of Neil Gaiman, China MiĆ©ville, and Holly Black" (Starred Review)
