'Deftly written, pacey and unflinching, I could not put down Dark Chapter. Winnie Li is a rare talent with an explosive and timely story. Do not miss it.' Marti Leimbach, bestselling author of Dying Young and Daniel Isn’t Talking

Vivian is a cosmopolitan Taiwanese-American tourist who often escapes her busy life in London through adventure and travel. Johnny is a 15-year-old Irish teenager, living a neglected life on the margins of society.

On a bright spring afternoon in West Belfast, their paths collide during a horrifying act of violence.

In the aftermath, each is forced to confront the chain of events that led to the attack.

Inspired by true events, this is a story of the dark chapters and chance encounters that can irrevocably determine the shape of our lives.
