The tabloids call him the Birthday Boy. He snatches girls just before their 13th birthdays. One year later the family get a homemade card in the post – ‘HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!’ scrawled in blood-red ink above a Polaroid photograph of the missing girl. Detective Constable Ash Henderson is seconded to the investigation.
This is a fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat read, every bit as good as MacBride’s Logan MacRae series. It’s as grisly as ever – so if you are a sensitive soul, stay clear.
