Summary

The brilliantly compelling second novel in the DI Lukas Mahler series.

A missing child. A 70-year-old murder. And a killer who's still on the loose.  

Ten year-old Erin is missing; taken in broad daylight during a friend's birthday party. With no witnesses and no leads, DI Lukas Mahler races against time to find her. But is it already too late for Erin - and will her abductor stop at one stolen child? 

And the discovery of human remains on a construction site near Inverness confronts Mahler's team with a cold case from the 1940s. Was Aeneas Grant's murder linked to a nearby POW camp, or is there an even darker story to be uncovered? 

With his team stretched to the limit, Mahler's hunt for Erin's abductor takes him from Inverness to the Lake District. And decades-old family secrets link both cases in a shocking final twist.

Thoroughly Enjoyable

Good police crime story with believable characters and David Rintoul is among the very best narrators.
