That was really hard for Carol and her mother.Carol doesn't listen to the music of her favourite singer Jake Rosso anymore. He was also killed in an accident. She doesn’t do her best at school and she gets into contact with wrong friends, and she takes drugs. One moment her mother says to Carol: “Carol where are things going with you?” Her mother concludes to go back to England, because Carol was expelled from school.
So they go to England andlive in a hotel for a long time. Her mother finds a job as secretary and her workplace is on a little island somewhere in Scotland. She can live there with Carol.

The next day Carol makes some pictures of the house. She looks in her camera and Mr. Ross gets out. She wants to make a picture but then the gardener comes toward her and takes the camera out of her hands and demolishes her photograph cotton reel. She is shocked. When she asks why she can't make a photo he said that you nevermust make a photo of Mr. Ross. She finds it all completely mysterious.
That evening she goes researching and she goes to the room the window belongs to. There’s light in the room. She waits and looks. Then the door is opening. Mr. Ross comes out of the room. Carol hides in her room. She sees that Mr. Ross puts the keys in the plant barge. The next day she goes up to the room, picks up the keysand enters the room. She looks around. She sees a lot of posters of Jack Rosso. Then Mr. Ross is coming in the room. She is shocked and looks at the posters. Then she sees it: Mr. Ross is Jack Rosso. She shouted: “You are Jack Rosso!” Just as Mr. Ross says nothing. But then he says the he is Jack Rosso. He says: “In the past I was on drugs and I was addicted to alcohol. I was drunk, got in the carand then I ran over a 15 year old girl and killed her, but I drove further. Later I realised what I had done and I wanted to die. I had a plan: I pretended there was an accident and I was dead”
She finds it strange that she lives on a island with a dead man. Later she’s going away from the island and now she is at school and she is very happy.

My opinion: I found this a very nice book.Normally I don’t like exciting story’s. Bud this was a exciting story and I found it very nice.
