Book Description

25 Oct 2012

A three-year-old girl is snatched from a beach. Nobody heard a sound. Nobody saw a thing.

Rosie Gilmour's much-needed holiday is cut short when the abduction story breaks and she's sent to cover it. Her instincts tell her something's wrong: such a crime must surely have witnesses, and the girl's mother's story doesn't add up.

With a child's life at stake, Rosie must dig deeper into the seedy depths of the area, making dangerous enemies. As she closes in on the truth, she realises the penalty for missing this particular deadline could be her own demise.

Product Description

Review

'having been glued to the opening chapters of To Tell The Truth, I applaud her ... this is a social issue that's worth discussing' Scottish Sun.

'The book is as perfectly paced and neatly plotted as any Ian Rankin novel, with a wide appeal for both male and female readers' Daily Mail.

'gripping' The Times.

'It is as gritty, suspenseful and real ... the story is a complete page turner that grips you as the seedy depths of human trafficking and networks unravel' crimesquad.

'shocking and compelling, it's impossible to look away until the last headline has been written' Daily Record.

From the Inside Flap

A three-year-old girl is snatched from a Spanish beach while on holiday with her parents. Nobody heard a sound. Nobody saw a thing. Or so they claim. Rosie Gilmour is enjoying a well-deserved holiday on the Costa del Sol: one that is cut short when the abduction story breaks and she's sent to cover it. Rosie's instincts tell her something's wrong. Such a crime, committed in broad daylight, must surely have its witnesses? The girl's mother's story, what's more, doesn't add up. When Rosie is approached by an illegal sex worker with information about the abduction, her instincts are confirmed. Key information about the crime is being withheld from the authorities. The reason: corrupt politicians and vicious human trafficking gangs - enemies one would think twice about making. But thinking twice is not in Rosie's DNA, especially when a child's life is at stake. As she closes in on the truth, Rosie realises the penalty for missing this particular deadline could be her own death.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
i had never even heard of this author before but a review of this book in a local newspaper
made me want to read it.i was a bit intrigued especially as i live in Glasgow and the main
character in the book lives in Glasgow and some of the book is set there.i was not disappointed
in fact i couldnt put it down.its very thought provoking,heartbreaking at times violent in parts
but i loved it and cant wait to read more of Anna Smith.

This was a good story, harrowing topic but wasn't quite expecting the gratuitous elements in the opening chapters and there was no mention in the description that this has such bad language - a warning would have been good and then I would have avoided it.

A quick read and enjoyable. Not sophisticated writing, but not bad at all.

Buy it, make a coffee, put your feet up and finish it in one sitting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rosie is at it again.... Fantastic Read 4 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Three-year-old Amy is snatched off the beach whilst her mother is otherwise engaged.
Rosie Gilomor is on holiday recovering after she nearly got killed 6 months ago, when her editor Mick Mcguire in Glasgow phones her, although she is not longer a hack, she is now the assistant editor in charge of investigations. He has her driving to Marbella to cover the story, as she's the only one he can trust to cover it.
And off Rosie goes on a new Journey and new story.......................
With different accounts of what happened on the beach and who was where its only a matter of time before the truth comes out.
Some very likeable and some very disturbing characters, its great how this book just blends and brings everything together.
Not for the faint hearted, but it is a very good read.
Didn't think it was possible but I enjoyed Anna's second book in the Rosie Gilmour series even more than the first.
I had pre ordered Anna's 4th book when i suddenly realised i still hadn't read book 2 and 3, which is a good thing as i dont have to wait for ever to start the next one now...

4.0 out of 5 stars Well thought out theme.
It starts off at a fast pace, all the characters came through realistically. Later on in the story, I thought it just dragged a little but it picked up again. I enjoyed it.

A very dramatic and emotional end to this book makes it worth a read. In the middle the story was less gripping and I found I scan read quite a bit.
