Summary

I've taken your daughter as punishment for what you did....

Prepare to be gripped by the heart-stopping new thriller from the author of The Madam.

South London detective Sarah Mason is a single mother. It's a tough life, but Sarah gets by. She and her ex-husband, fellow detective Adam Boyd, adore their 15-month-old daughter, Molly.

Until Sarah's world falls apart when she receives a devastating threat: her daughter has been taken, and the abductor plans to raise Molly as their own, as punishment for something Sarah did.

Sarah is forced to stand back while her team try to track down the kidnapper. But her colleagues aren't working fast enough to find Molly. To save her daughter, Sarah must take matters into her own hands, in a desperate hunt that will take her to the very depths of London's underworld.

Dreadful narration

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration of the Irish detective was so bad that I boubt if I will even finish the book. It is so staged and the pronunciation was dreadful, the rest of the characters were well narrated but this ruined the story for me.
