Book Description

14 Aug 2014 Alice Quentin (Book 3)

The girl was lying on the steps of the Foundling Museum, dressed all in white.

Four girls have disappeared in North London. Three are already dead.

Britain's most prolific child killer, Louis Kinsella, has been locked up in Northwood high-security hospital for over a decade. Now more innocents are being slaughtered, and they all have a connection to his earlier crimes.

Psychologist Alice Quentin is doing research at Northwood. She was hoping for a break from her hectic London life, but she'll do anything to help save a child - even if it means forming a relationship with a charismatic, ruthless murderer.

But Kinsella is slow to give away his secrets, and time is running out for the latest kidnap victim, who is simply trying to survive...

One of the most absorbing books I've read in a long time. Alice Quentin is such a warm character - unique, yet very real. I loved the sense of menace too - perfectly thrilling. (Mel Sherratt, author of Taunting the Dead)

One of those books that leaves the reader wanting more. The life of the each character is so vividly painted that even those in minor roles become intriguing, and the pace never slackens from the first page to the last. (Rachel Abbott, author of Only the Innocent)
