POST PALS is a charity very dear to my heart. Having discovered this wonderful organisation many years ago, it, the people involved in running it, and the children whose lives are enriched by it, are seldom far from my thoughts. There are many ways in which you can help bring a little bit of joy to children whose lives have been disrupted by illness. Please take a look around for yourself by clicking on the logo. Thank you - Tony.
Nothing is ever entirely black or white.
Pre-teen girls are being abducted from their homes and their families murdered. When Frank Rogers, ex-DI with the Metropolitan Police, is told that his own daughter is missing, his son a victim, he sets aside his grief to help old colleagues investigate the case.
Soon Frank’s face is all over the news. And in an unexpected turn of events, the killer contacts the police to say he is willing to talk. But only to Frank.
When the body of the first abducted girl is discovered, Frank realises the investigation has become a race against time to save his daughter’s life.
In order to solve the case, Frank must work out how the killer is choosing his victims. To do that, he must first enter the killer’s mind. But is Frank able to drag himself into its darker reaches? And if so, will he be able to pull himself back?
