The hole they dug was not deep. A white flour bag encased the little body. Three small faces watched from the window, eyes black with terror.
The child in the middle spoke without turning his head. "I wonder which one of us will be next?"
When a woman's body is discovered in a cathedral and hours later a young man is found hanging from a tree outside his home, Detective Lottie Parker is called in to lead the investigation. Both bodies have the same distinctive tattoo clumsily inscribed on their legs. It's clear the pair are connected, but how?
The trail leads Lottie to St Angela's, a former children's home, with a dark connection to her own family history. Suddenly the case just got personal.
As Lottie begins to link the current victims to unsolved murders decades old, two teenage boys go missing. She must close in on the killer before they strike again, but in doing so is she putting her own children in terrifying danger?
Lottie is about to come face to face with a twisted soul who has a very warped idea of justice.

The missing ones
Thoroughly enjoyed this audio book.
Great writer and reader
... why is this jaw-dropping? It is pretty obvious, which makes the 'twist' boring. But quite well written.
This really is a gem of an author. There's so many crime writers and finding the ones who get it right with a perfect balance of suspense and a background story is rare. For a first book, this is so good...I can not wait for the next and the ones to follow!
