OH my! Another unexpected police procedural which had me gripped over the weekend.

A missing child led the detectives to the Burial grounds of a serial killer, and the investigation proceeded two-fold with a race against time to find the missing one before she became a dead one.

My first book by author Robert Scragg, though book 3 in the series, the writing kept me perusing my kindle with a keen eye. Both the detectives Porter and Styles had panache. They were careful in their investigation even when the findings left them aghast. There were many times I wanted the detectives to move faster. Prodding them helped.

The suspects were many, each with their own secrets. I wanted to just enjoy the ride, hence didn’t analyze. So I could say I suspected everyone. The book worked as a standalone, and I had fun getting to know the main characters. Red herrings and twists kept me motivated to read faster. The author was quite clever in sending me on dead ends… Just perfect.

Overall, another great police procedural over the weekend.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

A parent’s worst fear is realised when seven-year-old Libby Hallforth goes missing at a funfair; no witnesses, no leads, and no trace. Months later, after the trail for Libby has gone cold, DI Jake Porter and DS Nick Styles find human remains but that’s just the tip of a gruesome iceberg. Everyone is a suspect, nobody can be trusted, including the Hallforth family. The chances of getting justice for Libby are fading fast, along with Porter’s chances of stopping a killer before they strike again.

    1. I know… Missing children is so not for you… I read it from the analytical part of brain rather than the emotional one.
