`Superb, gritty and realistic' MEL SHERRATT, million copy bestseller

How long do you hunt for the missing?

A horrible vanishing act...

When a young Josie Masters sees a boy wearing a red football shirt, Dylan Jones, being taken by a clown at a carnival, she tries to alert the crowds. But it's too late. Dylan has disappeared...

Thirty years later, Josie is working as a police officer in Bath. The remains of the body of a child have been found - complete with tatters of a torn red football shirt. Is it the boy she saw vanish in the clutches of the clown? Or is it someone else altogether?

And then another child disappears...

MEDIA REVIEWS

`Superb - really enjoyable and gritty.' Mel Sherratt

'A cracking debut from M.J Ford. Well-written and sizzling with tension. Deserves to do well.' James Nally, author of Alone with the Dead

`A fab, page turning thriller!' Jacqui Rose

`I absolutely loved this well written,riveting debut mystery and would have happily given it far more than five stars.I really hope this is the first book in a new series and look forward to reading more books by this author in the future.' Goodreads reviewer

`Hold My Hand is an absolutely brilliant debut novel from a very talented author. It has an elaborate plot which is both convincing and exciting, a number of dubious suspects, twists and turns, an unbelievably scary and thrilling conclusion, in fact everything I want from a crime thriller. I love the character of Jo Masters who's feisty and has a life outside the police force, and I want to read more of her. It was impossible for me to stop reading, and when I really had to I found myself thinking about it. I can wholeheartedly recommend this novel which could well be a bestseller for 2018!' NetGalley reviewer

“Relentlessly gripping”

A first-rate thriller with one of the most nail-shreddingly frightening third acts I’ve read in procedural crime fiction in years. Can’t wait to see what M.J. Ford does next.
