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 Review; Where do I even begin? Book three into this series and it just keeps getting better and better doesn’t it? I am blown away and absolutely loving this series.
This case is a hard hitting one which relates to a similar case in the past, all containing children. As a parent these types of stories hit me even harder than ones without children involved, I can relate to the parents more. But OMG! Kim! That woman is sure a hero isn’t she? Always putting others first and even her own life on the line. It had my heart pounding, I was on the edge throughout and gasping for breathe towards the end. Those poor girls. A great outcome… A great result. A great team. A very twisted, cruel and unexpected suspect is found to be involved!
You know when you find a great series on Netflix and binge it? That’s what this series is like for me I want to race through them all and enjoy them, but at the same time I don’t cause what will I do without Kim and her team? Its addictive. I think these books would make a cracking tv series. One of the best series I’ve ever read so far. Very impressed.
I wonder what book four will bring… Oooh. I awarded a well deserved five stars and would highly recommend to you all… This series I have been buddy reading alongside Kate Everleigh and will be until the end so go check out her thoughts about this book too, here;
