I have been a fan of the author J. P. Carter from his first DI Anna Tate book.

London was burning in riots and protests when the police accidentally fired a pregnant wife of a drug dealer. Fires were started by these rioters, and body of a child found in one such burning building got my pulse racing. Anna Tate who was on leave was called back to investigate. Her 12-year-old daughter Chloe too was caught in the riots after an attack outside her home, and she was forced to run for her life.

OMG… Some of these scenes caused panic to rise into my throat. Spikes in my pulse rate seemed to be the norm as I read down the pages. The investigation by Anna and the Chloe’s blind running down unknown streets filled with unsavory chatacters, both had me gripped to the story. Sheer terror was what was evoked from me. Chloe’s helplessness got to me. She needed her mum.

J. P. Carter’s writing was straightforward with regards to investigation. Anna was at her best, determined and vigilant, getting to all clues and covering all angles. But it was Chloé’s story which got to me. A thriller it seemed to be which I needed to know if the child would be saved… The scenes she saw…

The whole experience was atmospheric, I loved the way Anna worked in such stressful conditions of the city. The ending sure was completely unexpected. Quite a different police procedural, action packed, I must say. I was drained out at the end of my read.

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.

Innocence is no protection against evil…

One early October afternoon, ten-year-old Jacob Rossi begins the short walk home from school. But he never makes it.

Days later, DCI Anna Tate is called to the scene of a burning building, where an awful discovery has been made. A body has been found, and the label in his school blazer reads: J. Rossi.

As Anna starts digging, she soon learns that a lot of people had grudges against the boy’s father. But would any of them go so far as to take his son?

And is the boy’s abductor closer than she thinks?
