The last thing a man expects his wife to bring back when she 'popped to the shops' is a young child. They should have taken her back, faced the consequences...done the right thing. But what happens when that innocent child instantly begins to mend a broken wife, and fix all that seemed unfixable? It's not quite so easy then. Twenty years later, another missing child, a lucky interview and the curiosity of a story-hungry trainee journalist throws up questions about what really happened to Jessica Preston when she disappeared from that beach all those years ago. When the journalist comes across someone with a secret from their past, it threatens to reveal what's been covered up for so long. Child Taken is a thrilling debut that explores the long-term impact on the lives of everyone involved in an unthinkable crime, one in which everyone has lost something. The cleverly-woven narrative follows the journey, past and present, of the abductors and the family from whom the child was taken, as well as those, who twenty years on, who just want to find out the truth. The answers seem obvious but then again, it all depends on your perspective. What would you have done?

“A must buy-must read”

I liked the front cover with the little girl in a pretty yellow dress on the beach, that is related to this story of Child Taken.
How can a mother not know where her little girl was on the beach? Absolutely chaotic... More
