Poor little Callum Hughes, forever picked on by bullies like the big, fat bully Roger Gough, aka "Dreadnaught." After years of being insulted, abused, and assaulted, Callum fights back--and stabs his tormentor in the chest. Then things get worse, and the beleaguered, desperate boy finds himself cast in the role of bully and tormentor. Patricia Gallimore narrates Masters's story of injustice and pain with the sympathetic voice of a woman who has seen and heard it all. As the voice of Medical Examiner Martha Gunn, Gallimore carries the weight of the storytelling chore with expertiser. Gallimore allows Gunn to wear her sympathy for Callum's plight on her sleeve, making the listener want to cheer her on as she tries to find a measure of justice.
