I get really excited when I find a new mystery author! This one had such a cool cover too. It’s perfect for this time of year!
Thank you Avon books for my gifted ebook in exchange for my honest review.
Synopsis: When six-year-old Marcus is taken from outside his house on Halloween, there is only one witness: a frightened teen determined to keep himself hidden. After an anonymous tip off, Detective Imogen Grey is called out to an expensive Exeter street, caught up in the buzz of the holiday. But when the police visit Marcus’s house, his parents claim everything is fine. Imogen is sure there is more to the family than meets the eye. But just how much more, she could never have imagined… What has happened to little Marcus? And will he ever come home?
If you are a fan of true crime, this one is for you! This is dark and intense and not for the faint of heart, only because it involves a child being kidnapped. It’s twisty and thrilling which is everything I want for an October read. It’s written so well, I need to go back and read the other books in this series! I’m not usually a fan of detective series because I feel like I miss out on key facts if I haven’t read the other books, but this works really well without having done as such. This one had me biting my nails all the way up to the end. This comes highly recommended!
