God, whom he no longer counts as a friend, obviously has a pretty screwed-up sense of humour: just one year before, the boy had looked on helplessly as his twin brother, Tom, suffered a violent death.  Now, having been seen by the angry murderer, he is a kid on the run. With only a shady grandfather, […]
