How far would you go to save the ones you love? The first book in a gripping new crime series featuring DCI Anna Tate.

When nine children are snatched from a nursery school in South London, their distressed parents have no idea if they will ever see them again. The community in the surrounding area in shock. How could this happen right under their noses? No one in the quiet suburban street saw anything – or at least that’s what they’re saying.

But DCI Anna Tate knows that nothing is impossible, and she also knows that time is quickly running out. It’s unclear if the kidnappers are desperate for money or set on revenge, but the ransom is going up by £1million daily. And they know that one little boy in particular is fighting for his life.

It’s one of the most disturbing cases DCI Anna Tate has ever worked on – not only because nine children are being held hostage, but because she’s pretty sure that someone close to them is lying…

Firstly a big thank you to Imogen for my copy to review.

Ive not read anything from this author before and as a blogger its always exciting to discover someone new.

This is a tale that weaves you into a complex family set up made even more complex by a devastating event.

Who is telling the truth and who is the enemy?

With as maby secrets as this family has its proving very difficult to unlock the truth.

Really enjoyed this and its very unpredictable.

Mysterious and a twisty thriller.


Look around you. Who holds the most power in the room? Is it the one who speaks loudest, who looks the part, who has the most money, who commands the most respect?

Or perhaps it’s someone like Christine Butcher: a meek, overlooked figure, who silently bears witness as information is shared and secrets are whispered. Someone who quietly, perhaps even unwittingly, gathers together knowledge of the people she’s there to serve – the ones who don’t notice her, the ones who consider themselves to be important.

There’s a fine line between loyalty and obsession. And when someone like Christine Butcher is pushed to her limit, she might just become the most dangerous

Everyone knows her name. But no one will speak to her now.
Cornelia Blackwood has unravelled once before. Can she stop it from happening again?

Firstly thanks to Dawn st Simon and Schuster for my copy to review.

The proof cover and blurb didnt give much away so was very intrigued to start.

What an amazing read of 2019

Intoxicating, dark, suffocating and completly relatable.

A layered read which as you discover the truth is incredibly tense.

This is a charactar im sure many will resonate with.

Dealing with important issues and one that theres still a lot of taboo about.

I wont give too much away but i will say that the author has written beautifully and sensitively .

Packed with emotions i cant recommend enough and look forward to seeing it flying off the shelves.

What does it take to catch one of Britain’s most feared killers?
Levi Bellfield is one of the most notorious British serial killers of the last fifty years – his name alone evokes horror and revulsion, after his string of brutal murders in the early 2000s.
At 3:07pm on 21st March, 2002, Milly Dowler left her school in Surrey for the last time. Less than an hour later, she was to be abducted and murdered in the cruellest fashion, sparking a missing person investigation that would span months before her body was found.
In the two years that followed, two more young women – Marsha McDonnell and then Amélie Delagrange – were murdered in unspeakably brutal attacks.
Yet with three murdered women on their hands, and few leads open to them, investigating officers were running out of ideas and options, until SIO Colin Sutton was drafted into the investigation for the murder of Delagrange. Seeing a connection between the three women, and thriving under the pressure of a serial killer hunt, Sutton was finally able to bring their murderer to justice after the case had begun to seem hopeless.

Manhunt tells the story of how he led the charge to find a mystery killer, against the clock and against the odds – day by day and lead by lead. At once a gripping police procedural, and an insight into the life of an evil man, this is the story behind what it takes to track down a shockingly violent murderer before he strikes again.

Firstly a big thank you to Francesca at Bonnier books for my copy to review.

I like many others watched the drama series manhunt which i loved ! However reading Colins words added a greater depth to the journey he took to bring Levi to his reckoning.

I am studying psychology and have a huge interest in the why people do what they do good and bad. This was an account of tracking him down and gave a great insight into what goes on behind closed doors. Its fair to say Colin went above and beyond his duty to catch the killer.

A fascinating and fast paced account of a tireless and not always rewarding career .

But Colin was a man who worked endlessledy and passionately to unravel the truth and that really shines through in this book.

Highly recommend for those with a interest in real crime whether personal , academic or professional.

For Sarah and Patrick, family life has always been easy. But when Sarah’s mother dies, it sends Sarah into a downwards spiral. Knowing they need a fresh start, Patrick moves the family to the beachside house he grew up in.

But there is a catch: while their new home carries only happy memories for Patrick, to everyone else it’s known as the Murder House – named for the family that was killed there.
