Description

Rachel Watts has just moved to Melbourne from the country, but the city is the last place she wants to be.

James Mycroft is her neighbour, an intriguingly troubled seventeen-year-old who's also a genius with a passion for forensics.

Despite her misgivings, Rachel finds herself unable to resist Mycroft when he wants her help investigating a murder. He's even harder to resist when he's up close and personal - and on the hunt for a cold-blooded killer.

When Rachel and Mycroft follows the murderer's trail, they find themselves in the lion's den - literally. A trip to the zoo will never have quite the same meaning again...

Sizzling chemisty and urban intrigue combine in this thriller from a fresh, exciting new talent.

'I loved this book. It's quirky and real, fast-paced and full of great characters. Mycroft and Watts are smart, sexy, flawed detectives. The tension between them is electric. I was hooked from the first page.' - Cath Crowley, author of Graffiti Moon

'I loved this book. It's quirky and real, fast-paced and full of great characters. Mycroft and Watts are smart, sexy, flawed detectives. The tension between them is electric. I was hooked from the first page.' - Cath Crowley, author of Graffiti Moon

“Think Sherlock and (female) Watson in Melbourne … Ellie Marney’s EVERY BREATH is a well-paced murder mystery involving a boy with a past, a country girl who hates being in town, two culturally diverse refugee teens and a down-and-out with his throat cut. A clever, insightful exploration of homelessness and identity – and a darned good yarn.”
Ann Packer, The 50 best children’s books of 2013 (The NZ Listener)

'By combining murder and mayhem with lashings of romantic tension, Marney has provided some rather fun, escapist fiction for teenagers - specifically the sort who do their homework.' - Diane Dempsy Sydney Morning Herald 

“With one of the best finales I’ve read—literally nail-biting, let me just say—this is not for the faint-hearted, with blood and grit aplenty… it’s enthusiastic and exhilarating and the characters and places feel really genuine. Melbourne really shines in this book, even if it does happen to be a blood-red reflection.”
Fiona, Reading Kills

Author description

Ellie Marney was born in Brisbane, and has lived in Indonesia, Singapore and India. Now she writes, teaches, talks about kid's literature at libraries and schools, and gardens when she can, while living in a country idyll (actually a very messy wooden house on ten acres with a dog and lots of chickens) near Castlemaine, in north-central Victoria. Her partner and four sons still love her, even though she often forgets things and lets the housework go. Ellie's short stories for adults have won awards and been published in various anthologies. Every Breath is her first novel for young adults.
