A chance encounter…
Leads to devastating consequences.
The statistics for missing children are staggering and emotionally hard to deal with even for the hardest of detectives.
DI Sally Parker and her cold case team need to have their wits about them when two very different cases land on her desk.
Can she solve the mystery of where the bodies are buried?
Past experience tells her that cold cases have a tendency to unearth surprising secrets.
The emotions of the families involved are raw during the course of the investigations but nothing can prepare them for the surprising outcome each case delivers.
Can Sally solve the cases before a distraught family member of one of the victims is laid to rest?
Cold cases are something that has always fascinated me so I am really loving this series with Sally and her team working their hardest to solve them.
The opening of the book really impacts the reader and I knew I had to carry on to see if justice gets served. Solving a murder case at the best of times can be hard work for the police but even harder when it’s over thirty years later with the risk of potential witnesses being dead.
As ever I also love the balance of the protagonists personal life. The authors main characters always seem to find a special place within my heart and it’s like catching up with good friends. It’s great to see a detective happy for a change and I have to admit to getting a tad emotional at one particular part and had to fight away the tears.
Any case to do with a missing child is going to make for an emotional read, especially the parts to do with their family. The author deals with it skilfully making it feel very realistic. It certainly makes the story go up a notch in terms of pace as they get closer to discovering the truth.
Lost Innocence is a hard hitting and emotional read that had me totally hooked. The authors books really are addictive and I literally can not get enough of them. Another unputdownable read that I read in one sitting.
My thanks to the author for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
