'A cracking story.' Natasha Harding, The Sun
The first in the D.I. Dylan series, set in Yorkshire and written by the husband and wife team who are the storyline consultants to TV's Happy Valley and Scott & Bailey.
The town of Harrowfield is shocked and unsettled at the disappearance of a young girl, just yards from her own front door. Detective Inspector Jack Dylan is tired and overworked and is hoping for a quiet Christmas with his partner, Jen. But the Yorkshire community's worst fears are confirmed when the naked body of Daisy Hind is found on a bleak, windswept moor.
As the murder investigation gets underway, another child is abducted, and another small body is found.
With the press increasingly on his back, Dylan has to catch a serial killer who is preying on children and he needs to solve the case before a third child is snatched.
