Summary

The Galaxy Unit was relatively new to the force; it had been set up two years previously, specifically to work with cases of child abduction and murder. Rocco had been instrumental in setting up the team, interviewing candidates, developing administration support systems, and generally project managing the delegation to her surrounding team.

All of the team worked well together, handling over 30 cases at any one time, many of the files contained cases of missing teenagers who had absconded because of parental neglect or sexual abuse, step sibling issues or similar. Sadly, just as common were the toddlers and young children taken by disgruntled divorced parents trying to get one over on the other by taking them abroad and away from the UK legal system without a court application or parental consent.

The hardest to deal with by far were those children who were taken completely randomly, by strangers for sexual exploitation, trafficking, or sometimes, to replace a lost child. These cases were rare and up until now, Rocco could count the cases she’d personally headed up, on one hand. All that was about to change for all of them, forever.

Fascinating could not stop listening

I found this book so easy to listen to via audible, I mostly listen to books while driving, and found I was finding excuses to get in the car to listen to more.

This should definitely be made into a TV series, I can see Surane Jones playing Rocco.

Gripping and insightful

I loved how the characters evolved and the reader is taken on their journey, step by (sometimes grim) step. A difficult theme dealt with compassionately and insightfully. A good listen!

Absolutely loved it. Fast Paced. Well narrated.

I was gifted this audio book as a free download. But I have to say without bias, I absolutely loved it. It is fast paced and the author makes no attempt to string it out like a lot of other books I’m currently listening to. It’s clear the author knows the ins and outs of how the police and child protection services work (it’s really well explained). The narrator is so good !!! I love the characters, especially Rocco and I can’t wait for the next book in the series. Honestly, have a listen, you won’t be disappointed.

Quickly got into the story. Loved the characters, especially PC Hesh. Fast paced, I felt a mixture of emotions throughout. Beautifully read too.
