When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard?
Brought up by the resident ghosts, ghouls and spectres, Bod has an eccentric childhood learning about life from the dead. But for Bod there is also the danger of the murderer still looking for him — after all, he is the last remaining member of the family.
A stunningly original novel deftly constructed over eight chapters, featuring every second year of Bod's life, from babyhood to adolescence. Will Bod survive to be a man?

    ‘Someone killed my mother and my father and my sister.’
    ‘Yes. Someone did.’
    ‘A man?’
    ‘A man.’
    ‘Which means,’ said Bod, ‘you’re asking the wrong question.’
    Silas raised an eyebrow. ‘How so?’
    ‘Well,’ said Bod. ‘If I go outside in the world, the question isn’t, “Who will keep me safe from him?” ’
    ‘No. It’s “Who will keep him safe from me?”
