Revolver by Marcus Sedgwick
Are you looking for a short, intense thriller? Revolver might be the book for you. It's an historical mystery/thriller set at the turn of the century 100 miles north of the Arctic Circle. 14 year-old Sig is waiting in the cabin with his dead father when a huge, menacing man appears at the door. He's carrying a colt revolver, but Sig knows there's a hidden one in the storeroom. Will he be able to use it? Will he actually kill a man? I read this book in one sitting...drinking hot chocolate the whole time.
