- #3 in the Kim Stone series
Two girls go missing. Only one will return.
The couple that offers the highest amount will see their daughter again. The losing couple will not. Make no mistake. One child will die.
When nine-year-old best friends Charlie and Amy disappear, two families are plunged into a living nightmare. A text message confirms the unthinkable; that the girls are the victims of a terrifying kidnapping.
And when a second text message pits the two families against each other for the life of their children, the clock starts ticking for D.I. Kim Stone and the squad.
Seemingly outwitted at every turn, as they uncover a trail of bodies, Stone realises that these ruthless killers might be the most deadly she has ever faced. And that their chances of bringing the girls home alive, are getting smaller by the hour...
Untangling a dark web of secrets from the families' past might hold the key to solving this case. But can Kim stay alive long enough to do so? Or will someone's child pay the ultimate price?
The latest utterly addictive thriller from the No.1 bestseller Angela Marsons.
A detective hiding dark secrets, Kim Stone will stop at nothing to protect the innocent.
This is the third in the Kim Stone series and really is very compelling reading.It revolves around the worst scenario any parent can imagine, the abduction of a child, but two friends have been abducted, and then the kidnapper pits the parents against each other in a macabre auction to secure the return of their individual child.
Kim Stone initially is not to head the investigation but her participation is requested by one of the parents who shares part of her past. Kim's boss lets her know that her management is under close scrutiny and she is under great pressure from him to deliver. But that pressure is really nothing in comparison to the pressure puts herself under. As the days go on Kim becomes convinced that there is something they have missed.
