Review; Conrad Jones has done it again with his Alec Ramsay books. Crime thriller writing that will have you chewing your fingers as you read!

The Child Taker is a Number 1 International Crime Thriller; Book 1 in the Detective Alec Ramsay Series

A stand alone novel based on high profile child abductions, which have been followed by millions of concerned parents on the news. 5 year old twins are abducted from a tent in the Lake District and the hunt for a dangerous paedophile ring begins. Police procedure follows the premise that 60% of abducted children are murdered within the first four hours of being taken. The first hour is called "The golden hour" and the longer a child is missing, the less chance there is of them being recovered unharmed. The Child Taker follows the desperate search for the missing twins. Packed with action and twists, this is one of the best thriller novels around. Guardian Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Gritty and Gripping 7 Jan 2014
By Pammie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Child Taker - I read this in two days. I simply couldn't put it down as I had to know what happened. Not for the faint-hearted as the descriptions are gruesome in places but they all add to the atmosphere of a well-written novel. Loads of threads, all linking together in this action packed tale. Makes you want to keep looking over your shoulder when the little ones are in your care. I have the box-set and this review is for the first book, but I'm looking forward to the sequel and I'm sure it'll be just as good.

Just to add that I've now read the sequel - Criminally Insane - and was just as gripped and on the edge of my seat as I was with The Child Taker. Absolutely brilliant and a skillfully, well-woven tale that'll have you looking over your shoulder. Lots of heart-in-the-mouth moments. Jack Howarth is quite possibly the most evil man in fiction today, certainly one of the most wanted. But do read this box-set for yourself and see what you think.

A compelling book would make a terrific film, enjoyed reading but bit stomach churning in places. But I still found it hard to put down.

Conrad Jones tells it as it is. He doesn't hold back with the realism within his endless criminal mind. He has you flying through the pages and leaving you wanting more. Another awesome read from the master of suspense! Loved it!
