Appearances can be deceptive…
Arnold Eastwood is thrilled when social services allocate him a flat all of his own. Independence hasn’t come easily to a young man with Downs Syndrome but now he has the chance to live free from his mum’s nagging, find a girlfriend, watch endless movies and make new friends.
Meanwhile a London drug gang is setting up a supply line in Arnold’s town. They’re looking for someone to deliver drugs for them and somewhere to set up a base of operations.
Soon Arnold and his flat are in the drug gang’s sights. Drawn into the dark underworld of crack cocaine and modern slavery, Arnold soon discovers that friends can in fact be deadly enemies.
The question is: can he break free?
“Who’s there? landed in my inbox and completely took my breath away; it was different from anything else I had read in recent years, with brilliant characterization and an inventive plotline. I loved it!” – Anita Waller – best-selling author
“I loved the way the characters developed and the surprises along the way. The descriptions were very graphic and the care the author took in writing about Arnold was very moving. I read this in two days! I’m now Kerena Swan’s no.1 fan” – Graham Rolf
“I loved meeting Arnold. His unique voice leaps out, his warmth and trusting childlike qualities are a joy but as a young man with Downs Syndrome he’s too trusting. A recipe for unbearable tension. In ‘Who’s There?’, Kerena Swan makes masterful use of her Social Work background to weave scenarios that could easily be happening in a town or city anywhere.” – A B Morgan
“A refreshingly original tale on a crime theme”
“Shockingly believable. This story resonates all too chillingly with some of the social problems in modern-day Britain.”
