Two girls go missing. Only one will return.
The couple that offers the highest amount will see their daughter again. The losing couple will not. Make no mistake. One child will die.
When nine-year-old best friends Charlie and Amy disappear, two families are plunged into a living nightmare. A text message confirms the unthinkable; that the girls are the victims of a terrifying kidnapping.
And when a second text message pits the two families against each other for the life of their children, the clock starts ticking for D.I. Kim Stone and the squad.
Seemingly outwitted at every turn, as they uncover a trail of bodies, Stone realises that these ruthless killers might be the most deadly she has ever faced. And that their chances of bringing the girls home alive, are getting smaller by the hour…
Untangling a dark web of secrets from the families’ past might hold the key to solving this case. But can Kim stay alive long enough to do so? Or will someone’s child pay the ultimate price?
The latest utterly addictive thriller from the No.1 bestseller Angela Marsons.

This really has to be every parents nightmare. And can Kim cope when the pressure is on.
This was an absolutly brilliant read. I wanted to sit and read at every opportunity. But then as I got towards the 3/4 mark, I had to start slowing down, because I really didn't want this book to end. Gutted I have to wait for another one. This is one of those book's that if you discover it when a few others have been written after it, you would just have to dive right into the next one.
Kim is one of those characters that really grows on you over time. She is a character I really do like.
If you have not yet read the first two books, I really would recommend doing so before reading this, purely for getting to know the background of Kim. But you would get away with reading it as a stand alone.
Angela, I don't know how you do it, but by god please keep doing it.
