Summary

A completely unputdownable mystery and suspense thriller

Blair had stopped crying. There was no window, the walls were smooth and it was quiet. She didn’t want to be alone. But she didn’t want him to come back. 

When 11-year-old Blair Smearton is abducted near a river bank on the hottest day of the year, no one can trace the man spotted taking her. 

Detective Anna Gwynne is back at work with her cold case unit following a brutal attack that nearly cost her her life. She’s investigating the death of young Rosie Dawson, whose bones were found hidden in a hole in the ground 10 years ago. At least avenging Rosie’s murder, focusing on her past, can help Anna ignore her own. 

The only lead Anna has is a photo of Rosie posted on a chat room hidden deep online. And then she finds one of Blair. Kidnapped. In the exact same dark room. The same concrete walls. The same stony floor. The killer is bragging. No one can trace the photo. 

Blair’s time is running out. But Anna has a contact who knows the dark web better than anyone. He’s the key to finding those girls. Can Anna get his help to find Blair alive?

A heart-pounding thriller that will get right under your skin. If you love Karin Slaughter, Robert Dugoni, and Angela Marsons you’ll love this killer crime thriller.

Enjoyed the 2nd book more than the first

It's intriguing and different. Makes me want to research legal practices in the UK. They need guns. Pepper spray, cuffs and a baton doesn't seem to be enough for serial killers.

Worth The Credit

Great follow-up book to the 1st. I actually enjoyed this story more than the 1st. It does delve into some sensitive areas concerning children but doesn't go into graphic details. Narration was great!

I think I like the second book better than the first.

This is unusual in that I found this second mystery better than the first one.

Another great one in the series

Another great story in this series. I love a good ole crime and detective story and English detectives ever more. I’m out of credits so I’ll have to spend some money to get book#3, confident it will keep me entertained

great read

Superbly written story. Keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. Gruesome but not gratuitously violent. Don't think I could listened to it if it was.This narrator really is amazing absolutely top notch!
