2nd Bergman & Recht police case
on 28 December 2015
"Fifteen years ago a young girl was brutally attacked in the meadow behind her parents' Swedish country home. The crime went unreported; the victim silenced.
Cut to the present. It is a bleak February morning in Stockholm, when an unknown man is killed in a hit and run. At the same time, a priest and his wife are discovered dead in their apartment. Meanwhile, out in Bangkok on a business trip, a young woman finds that her flight has mysteriously been cancelled and, whichever way she turns, all contact with home has been cut off.
Following a trail that leads all the way back to the '90s, Alex Recht's team at the Stockholm Police, along with Investigative Analyst Fredrika Bergman, uncovers a terrible crime that was hushed up, but whose consequences reach further and deeper than anyone could ever expect."
A great follow-up to the first book in the Bergman & Recht series, hostage. Again the writing is fluent and engaging and the characters believable and very well drawn. The case moves along at a fast pace with many characters involved, but it is easy to follow and well built up to the dramatic ending.
Very much worth a read.
