(From the publisher):
I saw a boy killed...
I stood there on that crowded street and saw them kill him. The others saw it, too.
Two of them held his arms while the scar-faced boy with the knife slashed him. On the third stroke they released their grip and the boy sagged to the ground. They stood over him and the killer pushed him with his toe. Then they were gone.
By the time I reached him, his face was contorted with pain. He was dying. I asked him who did it. "Big Step," he said. "He do the cutting. It—" and he was dead.
There were hundreds of people around and no one did anything. I had to go to the police – it was my duty to testify.
But I soon learned that witnesses – key witnesses – don't always live to testify.
