Product Description

Review

`This author`s books are so current that they could be taken straight off the news. The sixth episode in a fast growing series, I`m at a loss to explain how he keeps them so exciting, while different from the previous novels. Yet again, a 10/10 thriller. --The Reporter

Book Description

A gripping thriller telling the story of the desperate search for two abducted twins.

5.0 out of 5 stars The child taker 22 April 2011
By Tramps like us VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'll be honest - I bought this because it was cheap and looked as if it could be OK !!
I bought it, along with a couple of others, for holiday but had finished it long before I got away as it was so good. An unpleasant subject to write about but Mr Jones does it very well.
Were this reviewed in the Sun or the News of the World it would have , in heavy black type, "A story ripped from today's headlines" writ large across it but . . .
Thoroughly enjoyable book and I shall be looking for more of his novels (hopefully at the same cheap price !!)
Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read. Give it a try. 20 Mar 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to be honest, I had never heard of Conrad Jones (Sorry Mr Jones), and really only bought the book as it was a bargain on the Kindle and I'm open to reading any thrillers from any authors.
Initially I couldn't work out where the book was going as in the first 4 chapters, two were dealing with a child taker and the other two were dealing with a secret ops unit in somalia. When it became apparant where the book was going I was enthralled and couldn't put it down.
I cannot believe those that have given the book 1 and 2 star ratings, one even saying the writing was childlike! I found the book every bit as a good as those from writers such as Linwood Barclay, Andrew Gross, James Patterson. The book kept me gripped to the end, and boy what an ending.
I would certainly read more books from this author, although not so keen on the terrorist genre of books, but certainly if he wrote more thrillers like this I would buy them all.
Highly recommend it. Give it a try.

Like others, I couldn't put this down, for once I was glad I have sleep problems! I was totally engrossed from start to finish, not my usual genre but will be looking for more of Mr Jones' work.

5.0 out of 5 stars the mystery 2 Jan 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
i love books i read and read books but out ofall them books i find this most intresting as the chapters are about different people and the
horrors of the book tell me how people can be
so mean in life and how one little thing turns
into a big thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Author, Great Book 23 Mar 2010
By dave
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having read all books by this Author and have been impressed by every one, I ordered this book to loan from my local library. I waited that long I gave up and bought it. I was not disappointed. The author comes from Warrington where I live and being born in Liverpool, I can relate to the majority of places he mentions in his book. This particular book I could not put down, just like all the others before, and finished it in 2 days.I did have my suspicions as to who were the culprits, but what a great finish! Would love to meet this guy and shake his hand.
Brilliant Writer, look forward to his next one.

Liked the action at times but the action at other times a bit far fetched. Overall a good read however.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great gritty writer like James Herbert
I am a big James Herbert fan and this guy's books remind me of his style of writing. It's not horror but it's not mainstream thrillers either. Read more
