Publisher's Summary

The kidnapping of a 12-year-old diabetic boy has blown the case of some missing children wide apart and the finger is pointing at the heart of the Met. Boss Corrigan sends in the only cop in his team who would care more about the life of a boy than about her own career. Detective Inspector Hanlon. And then he sends someone to spy on her.

Timely and transfixing.

I really could not stop listening to this gripping thriller. Amazon lists this as the start of a series - I do hope so.
DI Hanlon, "the face of post feminist policing", as a colleague describes her, is a complex and fascinating character - a cross between Boudicca and Superwoman. She may cut corners and dispense her own rough justice but we are behind her all the way. The plot is dark and sometimes deeply disturbing focusing as it does on institutional corruption and paedophilia but it is executed in an intelligent and un salacious manner and keeps the reader hooked until the end.
Extremely well written and extremely well read - this is I hope a tantalizing foretaste of things to come.

Outstanding

Unexpected when I got this audiobook in a two for one credit deal. So glad I did. Story was deep and complex and glad I got the sequel in the same deal. Time to start the next one...

Took a little while to get going but well worth sticking with

The first few chapters had me debating whether to carry on, however I’m very glad I did... the story picks up pace and it kept me enthralled until the bloody brutal end.
Excellent story and wonderfully narrated by Adjoa Andoh.
About to start book 2
