It was a crime of ingenious evil: a seven-year-old girl taken from her home by a young couple posing as social workers. Chief Inspector Alan Banks fears for little Gemma Scupham, even as the motive for her kidnapping remains a mystery. No ransom is ever demanded, nor could Gemma’s tortured, guilt-ridden mother afford to pay one.
And when the body of a young man is discovered in an abandoned mine, slain in a particularly brutal fashion, a disturbing case takes one more sinister twist, drawing Banks into the sordid depths of malice more terrible and terrifying than anything the seasoned investigator has ever encountered.
Utterly suspenseful and compelling, Wednesday’s Child will leave readers guessing and on the edge of their seats.
