A child is killed after falling from the Humber Bridge. Two young brothers are found guilty and sent to prison. Upon their release they are granted anonymity.
Probation officer Cate Austin is responsible for Humber Boy B's reintegration into society. But the general public's anger is steadily growing, and those around her wonder if he deserves to keep the secret of his identity. Cate's loyalty is challenged when she begins to discover the truth of the crime. Is a child capable of premeditated murder? Or is there a greater evil at play?

‘A’ for Humber Boy B:
An interesting story - told through three main characters. each chapter allows the listener to piece together the timeline as the story unfolds. Well constructed, sub plots woven in, and all resolved - always a satisfying aspect of a book for me.
Will look out for more from this author

Too much backwards and forwards
I'm no big reader, and i do struggle to concentrate.
I enjoyed the story, but with over 100 chapters and the story going backwards and forwards it was a bit hard for me to follow.
There was also characters, with great detailed parts that had no relevance to the overall plot.
Seemed to be dragged out for so long and then when all falls into place it wasn't that surprising or exciting.
Eventually I couldn't wait for it to end.
But please, this is the 3rd book I've had on here and I'm not a good reader or listener so don't be too put off by my review.
The reading was good, changed accents well for the characters.
I found the speed too fast at X1 for me and the x.75 a bit of a drone. Wish there was a .85/90 or something in between.
Anyway. I got me a new credit today so now in search for my next read.
A mixture of sadness, worry and tears
Would you consider the audio edition of Humber Boy B to be better than the print version?
haven't read the print version but I loved the audible version.
What did you like best about this story?
The gripping story from beginning to end. It was so intense with a twist at the end that left me gasping.
What does Penny McDonald bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I love Penny McDonald as a narrator, this is one reason I read this book as she gets into every character whether they are male of female.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes, the realisation of the true story and what actually happened that day.
