Summary

Early on a cold Somerset morning, ten year old Alesha Daniels is reported missing by her father, a violent alcoholic. Her mother, a known drug addict, is found unconscious, but it’s her mother’s boyfriend the police are keen to trace.

As the hunt for Alesha gathers pace, a second local girl is taken, plunging another family into the depths of despair.

Cutting short his holiday, DI Nick Dixon races home to join the Major Investigation Team, but no sooner has he identified a network of local suspects than they begin to show up dead.

At odds with his superiors, Dixon is convinced the child abductions are anything but random, but nobody is prepared for the investigation to lead quite so close to home.

Can Dixon and his team crack the case before all the suspects are silenced? And will he find the missing girls before it’s too late?

brilliant!

I can't say how happy I am audible has re-recorded books 1 to 8 with the unrivalled Simon Mattacks as the narrator (I did plead for this in my reviews of books 9 onwards!). I'm going to work through the earlier books now. I only wish audible would do a 2for1 deal on the first two as they are rather short - would do a great job getting new fans onto the series as well!

Gripping.

Excellent story! Suspense without gore! Keeps you guessing most all the way through. I am looking forward to the next book in the series!
