Book Two: Blood Runs Cold - Out 16th May 2018
Blair had stopped crying. There was no window, the walls were smooth and it was quiet. She didn't want to be alone. But she didn't want him to come back.
When eleven-year-old Blair Smeaton is abducted along a river on the hottest day of the year, no-one can trace the man spotted taking her.
Detective Anna Gwynne is back at work with her cold case unit following a brutal, near fatal attack suffered at the hands of the last killer she brought to justice. She's investigating the death of young Rosie Dawson, whose bones were found abandoned in a remote spot ten years ago. Anna's on a mission; avenging Rosie's murder, focussing on her past, might help her ignore her own.
The only lead Anna has is a photo of Rosie posted on a chat room hidden deep online. And then she finds one of Blair. Kidnapped. In the exact same dark room. The same concrete walls. The same stony floor. The killer is bragging, camouflaged in the deep web.
Blair's time is running out. But Anna has a contact who knows the dark web better than anyone. He's the key to finding those girls. But he is also a killer in his own right.
