The Blurb

Two girls go missing. Only one will return.
The couple that offers the highest amount will see their daughter again. The losing couple will not. Make no mistake. One child will die.

When nine-year-old best friends Charlie and Amy disappear, two families are plunged into a living nightmare. A text message confirms the unthinkable; that the girls are the victims of a terrifying kidnapping.

And when a second text message pits the two families against each other for the life of their children, the clock starts ticking for D.I. Kim Stone and the squad.

Seemingly outwitted at every turn, as they uncover a trail of bodies, Stone realises that these ruthless killers might be the most deadly she has ever faced. And that their chances of bringing the girls home alive, are getting smaller by the hour…

Untangling a dark web of secrets from the families’ past might hold the key to solving this case. But can Kim stay alive long enough to do so? Or will someone’s child pay the ultimate price?

My Thoughts

Angela Marsons is fast becoming one of my favourite contemporary Crime/Thriller writers. This is the 3rd in the D.I. Kim Stone series, with a 4th coming very soon, and the stories are getting better and better. Kim Stone can be irritating to read sometimes, I just want her to be a bit more human when interacting with people, but that’s what makes her special.

This story, as most involving children, hit hard and I so wanted to find out the outcome and the ending was the one I had hoped for. I cheered at one point, the kids found it hard to believe that a book could garner such emotion in the reader. When the writing is as good as this it’s hard not to get involved and I cannot wait to read the new book.
