How far would you go to save the ones you love?
The first book in a gripping new crime series featuring DCI Anna Tate.
When nine children are snatched from a nursery school in South London, their distressed parents have no idea if they will ever see them again. The community in the surrounding area is in shock. How could this happen right under their noses? No one in the quiet suburban street saw anything – or at least that's what they're saying.
But DCI Anna Tate knows that nothing is impossible, and she also knows that time is quickly running out. It’s unclear if the kidnappers are desperate for money or set on revenge, but the ransom is going up by £1million daily. And they know that one little boy in particular is fighting for his life.
It’s one of the most disturbing cases DCI Anna Tate has ever worked on – not only because nine children are being held hostage, but because she’s pretty sure that someone close to them is lying…
It is an upsetting but entirely plausible story line about 9 children snatched from a nursery school. There are numerous suspects as the story line continues. It is an engaging read and hard to put down. The Author draws you right in and then throws a twist at you right at the end. I would have liked a bit more depth to some of the characters as I just couldn't warm to them, but that is my only real criticism.
I liked Anna and I'm interested to see where the author takes her next. All in all this is a good read.
