He’s been brainwashed. Nothing will stop him from doing what that woman wants.
DI Helena Stratton takes on a missing person’s case that at first seems like a lad just hasn’t come home on time. But when someone turns up dead…
Why is this person taking teen boys?
What are ‘the crow’ and ‘the hollow’?
With death involved, it’s imperative the team find the abductor—and fast.
And who on earth is the child in the tree?
Well, yet again the authors have come up with a gripping story line that had me hooked throughout.
The authors start as they mean to go on with a dark and disturbing prologue and they kept it up all the way through. You can’t help but get more emotional when children are involved. The angst that the parents go through when their child doesn’t return home, really doesn’t bear thinking of and I pitied Helena having to deal with the parents as got to be one of the hardest parts of the job.
The scenes with the abductor were very eerie and scary and I really felt for the boys and what they are going through. It certainly made for a tense and at times, heart wrenching read.
The Child In The Tree is an enthralling and at times terrifying read. The authors throw in some very unexpected turns in the story adding to the thrill factor. Am really enjoying Helena and her team and how they work. A crime series definitely not to be missed.
My thanks to the authors for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
