Cry Baby by David Jackson


Book Description:

It’s every mother’s nightmare – the abduction of her baby.

That’s how it starts for Erin Vogel when she is attacked and left unconscious in her apartment. When she awakes, it is to find that Georgia, her six-month-old daughter, has been taken.

But Erin is given a chance to get Georgia back. At an unthinkable price.

Like most mothers, she has always said she would do anything for her child. Now the strength of that bond is about to be put to the ultimate test.

And when her actions arouse the interest of a certain Detective Callum Doyle, one thing is inevitable: a confrontation that will be as explosive as it is unforgettable.

From the highly acclaimed author of Pariah, The Helper and Marked comes a nerve-shredding novel that questions the line we draw between good and evil.

My Thoughts:

David Jackson is a fairly new author to me.

Quite a few people recommended this book to me and even though it is the fourth book in the Detective Callum Doyle series, it can easily be read as a stand alone.

I haven’t read the rest in this series so I am a prime example that it can be read as a stand alone though I certainly will be reading the rest of them.

As a mother, I had total empathy for Erin in the story. To wake up and realise your daughter is missing would have to be the worst feeling in the world. To get her daughter back though, Erin has to make some unimaginable choices.

This is a story that will certainly have readers questioning how far they would go for the ones they love.

Even though I don’t know much about Cal’s background, I have to say I am very intrigued about his relationship with his work colleague, Le Blanc. It certainly didn’t spoil the story for me that I don’t know much about him as the way it is written it wasn’t an issue as there is very little reference to anything that will have been in the other books in the series.

Cal is very much hitting his head against a brick wall in this book. They have someone in custody that could help them catch the killer but he is getting nowhere. I could very much feel his frustration and the tension that is building.

The story very much focuses on Erin and her attempt to get her daughter back safe and well. This made the story an extremely tense read that had me on the edge of my seat.

Cry Baby should come with a warning as when you start it, the rest of the world just stops. I literally could not get enough and I didn’t want to put it down until all my questions had been answered and boy I wasn’t disappointed. There are certainly some hair raising moments in there.

Can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.

Cry Baby is available to purchase from Amazon.
