Synopsis: Shortly after Kipp Brown and his teenage son, Mungo, arrive at the Amex stadium for their team’s biggest-ever football game, Mungo disappears. A short while later Kipp receives a text with a ransom demand and a warning not to go to the police if he and his wife want to see their son alive again. But as a massive, covert manhunt for the boy and his kidnappers begins, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace starts to realize that not all is what it seems.
My review: Another great book in the DSI Roy Grace series. This is a really taut, tight thriller as Grace and his team race to save a young kidnapped boy. There were so many twists and turns in here and at one point several plot points I wasn’t sure where they were going. However it all pulled together neatly towards the end.
What starts with a kidnap ends up with 8 people dead, several bombs and hoaxes, tortured criminals and drug smuggling! There’s a lot going on and all over the space of a weekend. It’s easy to read the book in the same short space of time as the book is set. It’s hard to put it down, especially when thinking about the kidnapped young boy.
Absolutely loved it and looking forward to the next
