`A page-turner' - Sunday Times Crime Club

Tim Johnson took his baby daughter out for a walk and she never made it home. Johnson claims he was assaulted and the girl was snatched. The police see a different crime, with Johnson their only suspect.

A year later, Sam Bryne is on course to be elected as one of the youngest MPs in Westminster. He's tipped for the very top ... until he vanishes.

Detectives Murphy and Rossi are tasked with discovering what has happened to the popular politician - and in doing so, they unearth a trail that stretches into the past, and crimes that someone is hell-bent on avenging.

'
What I loved most about this book is how topical it is, how you can see it is inspired by news events and gives you a very fictional account of things we have seen occur over the past few years, boosted to the extremes' Nudge Book
