Paula Maguire Book 2.
Stolen. Missing. Dead...
Forensic psychologist Paula Maguire, already wrestling with the hardest decision of her life, is forced to put her own problems on hold when she's asked to help find a baby taken from a local hospital.
Then the brutal, ritualistic murder of a woman found lying on a remote stone circle indicates a connection to the kidnapping and Paula knows that they will have to move fast if they are to find the person responsible.
When another child is taken and a pregnant woman goes missing, Paula finds herself caught up in a deadly hunt for a killer determined to leave no trace, and discovers every decision she makes really is a matter of life and death...
Firsly I would like to thank the publishers for sending me a paperback copy of this book for review. I also ended up buying the book on kindle so my Mum could enjoy it. And as I don't always have room to store books, it's a good way of getting to keep a copy.
Book 2 in the Paula MaGuire Series. I recently read book 1 The Lost And really enjoyed it.
You can read my review of that on my blog. or clicking here.
So here we are again back with the wonderful Paula. She's a little mixed up this time, with things going on in her private life that she is so unsure of.
She is faced with helping on a kidnapping case, as a forensic psychologist she works very closely with the police in the missing persons unit. Sometimes a little to closely.
This case soon turns into a murder case, and its down to the team to figure out what the hell is going on, and why babies are being taken from their parents.
Is there a link somewhere of is it just some mad Man/Woman taking them randomly.
Time is running out, if they are to save other babies, and save themselves then this team needs to act and act fast.
As I said this is the 2nd book I have read from this author featuring Paula McGuire, and she's a character I'm really beginning to like. I keep rooting for her, want to tell her off when she makes the wrong decisions, and root for her in what she does.
I was gutted I didn't get the answer to the one question throughout this book, that I wanted to know. ( I wont say as I don't want to spoil it). But I am so glad I now have book 3 to start, and I'm sure then next book will have to answer those lingering questions.
Overall - An interesting read, you can get lost in the story, and feel a part of it. I would recommend reading the first book for the character background. But all in all a good book and a 4/5 from me.
