OMG! I freaked out on this book. It was so bloody fantastic. An absolute fan of this author. Wow!!

5 children aged 3 years were kidnapped from a school picnic and after 3.5 years, 4 were returned. The other children said the fifth had died. It was the grandchild of investigating officer Kate. And she had to get to the truth… From 4 six year old kids…

My first book by author Anni Taylor, I was kept mesmerized by the story. I couldn’t stop reading it. I forewent my work and afternoon siesta just to finish this story. My kindle pulled me in. I breathed this story from beginning to end. It was in me. The emotions of the worried helpless parents were brilliantly shown, they reflected in me.

Kate as the lead cop was exceptional. I could see her being pulled apart by her broken relationship with daughter Abby and her commitment to her duty even after knowing her grandchild had probably died. I kept egging her on to get to the kidnappers and destroy them.

This was one reactionary read which lured me in with every page. The book is on NetGalley, get your hands on it. It is worth it!!

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.

It was summer in the mountains when five small children vanished from their nursery school picnic. The heat was stifling that day, the tinkle of an ice-cream van in the air.

Three and a half years later, in the dead of winter, the children are returned by their abductor… one by one.

All except for Ivy – the granddaughter of homicide detective Kate Wakeland. The other four children say Ivy is dead.

Speculation grows that the kidnappings were revenge for an offender that Detective Wakeland put in jail years before.

She engages in a battle of wits between herself, the kidnapper and the cold, vast expanse of mountains in between.
