If you stumbled upon a shocking mystery as a child, how would you react?
Secrecy. Friendship. Discovery. What We Saw is a nostalgic throwback to childhood days tapping into that innocent craving for mystery we all encounter.
It tells the story of a young boy, Liam O'Donnell, his cousin, Adam, and their experiences at their grandparents' caravan site one summer.
The two have an insatiable childhood hunger for mystery, aided by the friendly, but suspicious old Donald. He lets the two of them gather clues in his company, and shares ghost stories to feed their hunger.
When the disappearance of their dog leads to a terrifying discovery deep in the nearby woods, Liam and Adam are plunged into a very adult world of morals and decisions, and find themselves trapped in the dark clutches of secrecy and suspicion, far transcending mere mystery.
What We Saw is a funny, touching and thrilling British mystery novel that will have you hooked as the plot hurtles towards a shocking conclusion.

Danger of a more sinister nature threatens when the creatures-that-walk-on-two-legs settle in the valley and their leader, Ishmael, discovers the healing power of the unicorns’ horns.
