Summary

The gripping first novel in the exciting new Stone and Oliver series by award-winning author Mari Hannah. 

Alex should never have agreed to the spur-of-the-moment holiday with her sister. Seven days felt like a year without Daniel, her 10-year-old son. This was the first time they had been apart since he was born, and her husband had convinced her it was a good idea. It was a bad idea. Daniel has gone missing. 

Local CID officers David Stone and Frankie Oliver have been assigned their first case together. A small boy's fate lies in their hands, and the pressure is on. And when someone close to Daniel is found dead, they begin to feel the heat.

Terrible

I don’t know if this is a new author but it didn’t flow well, random descriptions, the story line was weak. I can’t quite put my finger on the reason, but it was terrible

I enjoyed listening to this detective story. It has a good story line, interesting people and
moves along at a pretty good clip. And I liked the narrator.
