Cross Your Heart: An absolutely gripping detective thriller that will leave you breathless (Detective Jess Bishop Book 2)
Blinking her eyes open, she looks around the room, taking in the bed and the wardrobe full of clothes she’s never seen before. This isn’t her bedroom. Those aren’t her clothes. She begins to cry as she wonders if she’ll ever see her own home again.
Three young girls are missing. All of them cold cases. All of them forgotten. But when Detective Jess Bishop identifies a disturbing link between them, she’s determined to find out what happened, and fights to re-open their cases.
At the scene of each abduction the kidnapper left a clue – a small bag of candy – in place of the missing child.
And then a fourth child is taken. Eight-year-old Ava is snatched from her hospital bed and when a bag of candy is found in her room, Jessica knows it’s the same kidnapper.
As the pressure to solve the case pushes Jess and her team to breaking point, Jess takes a personal risk she fears she’ll live to regret. But she has no choice.
Out of hospital, Ava can only get sicker: Jess is running out of time. Can she find Ava before it’s too late?
What a great read that turned out to be. I thoroughly enjoyed this, the second book in the Jess Bishop series.
Jess is really developing as a character now, Smart, stubborn, ballsy and also a little off the rails as she fights her own demons, what is not to like about this character.
This is an easy story to get lost in, once you start reading this book it's hard to stop. There is so much going on that you really feel the need to keep going with it. Wanting and needing to know what is going to happen. I find when you read so many books in the same genre that occasionally the characters can become a bit samey and get muddled up. Not with Jess, she is certainly an individual character.
We kick off this story with Jess waiting to find out if she is fit to return to work after her injuries from her last case. Jess an FBI agent is eagre to get back to what she loves doing.
Jess being Jess, will do all she can to get back to work 'officially. If this means bending the truth a little, then that is just what Jess will do.
When a child is snatched from her hospital bed, a bag of candy is found in her room, Jessica is convinced this is linked to 3 previous kidnappings. Jess and her team are running out of time to find who the kidnapper is before it's to late, and before anymore children go missing.
We have a great mix of characters in this book, and some are really turning out to be very likeable.
I am eagerly awaiting the next instalment to see where this series can go.
