Publisher Comments:

Ive never told this story to anyone because when I was twelve

I swore an oath in blood that I would never tell it. But the friends I swore

it with are dead now, so its time to break that oath and tell the truth…

One summer changes everything. The summer of 1949 Andy and his three best friends discover an unexploded bomb buried in the Big Brown Hill. On that hill, beside the bomb, the foursome vow to keep their discovery a secret-a sin of omission that has the gravest of consequences.

This explosive story of boyhood camaraderie, set in postwar London, follows four friends as they confront issues of racism, loyalty, morality, and mortality, that have set their country, their community, and their lives ablaze.

About the Author

Nigel Hinton was born in London in 1941 in the middle of an air-raid. As a child he was most interested in reading, going to the movies, and playing with friends out on the street or on the many bomb sites that existed after the Second World War.

Nigel has worked in an advertising agency, as a road-sweeper, as a swimming pool lifeguard, as a teacher, and as an actor. He wrote his first book while teaching. He is married and lives in East Sussex, England.

Three of his favorite things: a candy called Midget Gems, European football (the Charlton Athletic team in particular), and music (especially 50s rock and roll, R&B, and Bob Dylan). Three things he is hopeless at: getting up in the morning, playing football, and playing guitar (but he loves doing it anyway).
