In the midst of a Swedish winter, a young mother is found murdered behind her son’s nursery. Halfway across the world, in the sweltering Kenyan heat, a government official is kidnapped.
As a journalist, Annika Bengtzon is often on the frontline, witness to the darkness humans are capable of. But this time it’s different. It’s personal.
The official held to ransom is her husband and she must meet the extreme demands of his kidnappers if she is to bring him home. And what of the Swedish mother slain in the snow? Until her killer is found, no one is safe…
This little Gem must have pushed itself up the line for a reason, it really did want me to read it.
A great read with a thrilling story line, written to keep you turning the pages, and it certainly does. I read this book in just over a day.
I was a little gutted to realise this was actually book 9 in a series, I like to read series from book 1, but I didn't realise until i'd finished it.
