A missing girl. A buried secret. From the acclaimed author of I Found You and the Richard & Judy best seller The Girls comes a compulsively twisty psychological thriller that will keep you gripped to the very last moment. She was 15, her mother's golden girl. She had her whole life ahead of her. And then, in the blink of an eye, Ellie was gone. Ten years on, Laurel has never given up hope of finding Ellie. And then she meets a charming and charismatic stranger who sweeps her off her feet.

It’s 1997, and Cool Britannia’s in full swing. Oasis and Blur are top of the pops, and it feels like the whole country’s sorted out for E’s and wizz. But it’s not just UK plc that’s on a high. Life’s looking up for Frankie James, too. He’s paid off his debts to London’s fiercest gang lord, Tommy Riley. His Soho Open snooker tournament is about to kick off at his club. He might even have fallen in love. But then Frankie finds himself being blackmailed by a face from his past. They want him to steal something worth millions. Enough to get him killed. Or banged up for life if he says no.

I have read first two, you could read this without having read others first, or could read those after. I thoroughly enjoyed this one, Ronnie O’Sullivan really getting to grips with Writing stuff now. Has some laugh out loud comments and situations, really good storyline. Frankie I think seems very close to the main character Frankie.

I prefer dialogue from characters, so that I can get to know them. The writers thoughts on the conversations she has with the characters, are not what I find engaging.

There's a serial killer targeting the streets of Newcastle, seemingly picking his victims at random but subjecting them all to the same torturous end. When the Chief Inspector on the case goes missing, it falls on DCI Ryan to track down the man who is brutally murdering women and goading the police to 'catch me if you can'. As everyone becomes a suspect, Ryan and his team get drawn further and further into the case, but for Ryan the nightmare gets closer to home than he could ever have imagined.

I love the DCI Ryan books, and have listened to them all on Audible. This was a treat to,listen to this though. I have read the ‘Hermitage’ on Kindle as not on Audible yet, also now reading ‘Longstone’ on Kindle too for same reason. I shall probably buy them on Audible too even though I have read them. They are so well written I feel that the characters are known to me. The Narrators on ‘The Infirmary’ were brilliant. These stories would make a great TV series !

When Matt Ballard was starting out his career, three boys were murdered in the same area, the remote and bleak Gibbet Fen. When the main suspect was killed in a hit-and-run, the killings stopped. But Matt was not satisfied that the real murderer had been caught. Over 25 years later, Matt gets a photo in an unmarked envelope. It's of the Gibbet Fen crime scene. And the picture was taken before the murder took place. More photos arrive, relating to the historic murders, as well as intimate pictures of Matt's very secret private life.
