A Line of Sight is a compelling whodunnit woven through a story community, family and an extraordinary eight-year-old boy.
When Nick and Graeme set out rabbit shooting one August day neither of them realise their lives are about to change forever. They spot a couple of suspected cannabis growers on their land. Each fires in warning and one grower is killed. But who fired the fatal shot? And how far will each man go to prove himself not guilty?
The story of a young man facing the biggest dilemma of his life, A Line of Sight is an affecting portrayal of male friendship, the links between generations, and Swan – a blind boy whose strange take on the events brings great danger and unexpected clarity.
