The gritty new standalone crime novel from the No. 1 best-selling author of Shatter the Bones and Dark Blood

Detective Constable Ash Henderson has a dark secret...

Five years ago his daughter, Rebecca, went missing on the eve of her 13th birthday. A year later the first card arrived: homemade, with a Polaroid picture stuck to the front - Rebecca, strapped to a chair, gagged and terrified. Every year another card: each one worse than the last. The tabloids call him The Birthday Boy. He's been snatching girls for 12 years, always in the run-up to their 13th birthday, sending the families his homemade cards showing their daughters being slowly tortured to death. But Ash hasn't told anyone about Rebecca's birthday cards - they all think she's just run away from home - because if anyone finds out, he'll be taken off the investigation. And he's sacrificed too much to give up before his daughter's killer gets what he deserves...

    " It's a lot of fun to read a novel from this genre that is written by a writer who is not from the United States. Why? Because the endings are always just a little darker than an American reader would expect, which keeps you on your toes. The ending to this one is not cheery, and feels more authentic in many ways, but a bit of a stretch in others. The identity of the Birthday Boy was a bit of a reach for me, but it didn't matter because the storyline swirling around it was much more interesting and heartbreaking. "

    " I loved the Logan McRae series and decided to give this a go. Wasn't disappointed. Really enjoyed it and it kept me guessing until the end. The Alice character was my favourite though and added some humour to the story. "
