Summary

How long do you hunt for the missing?

A horrible vanishing act....

When a young Josie Masters sees a boy wearing a red football shirt, Dylan Jones, being taken by a clown at a carnival, she tries to alert the crowds. But it's too late. Dylan has disappeared....

Thirty years later, Josie is working as a police officer in Bath. The remains of the body of a child have been found - complete with tatters of a torn red football shirt. Is it the boy she saw vanish in the clutches of the clown? Or is it someone else altogether?

And then another child disappears....

an alright listen

I enjoyed this book. The narrator's style was annoying and a little over the top on occasion but seeing beyond this it's good if not a little far fetched. I had guessed certain people were involved but not how. Jo as a character is a little annoying as she is seemingly just super perfect despite everything.
