The story is an unusual and intriguing one. There is more than one story running because in the background is a perplexing case that Laura is handling. This adds even more interest and brings the characters more to life as the reader is treated to an insight to the difficulties faced by people whose choice of career means they are unable to discuss their working day. The author expertly brings this into the story adding extra interest and realism.
The story begins with a woman waking in the night to find a man at the foot of her bed staring at her. At first it appears that Ratty is up to his old tricks but when a photo is found to be missing Jackman and his team realise they have another much more dangerous intruder on the loose.
As more women are left traumatised by the night time visitor the team are struggling to work out why the intruder is stealing photos of boys around 10 years of age.
The team have their work cut out trying to sort the wheat from the chaff as other reports come in of events the police have been called out to that could have a bearing on the case.
A very complicated and extremely gripping story. Is Laura's case linked to Jackman's? What, if anything, does the lone man at the school gates have to do with it? Most importantly though is the question 'What is this night time visitor's end game?
As this list of night time visits and by default the number of boys on the list increases it becomes clear that the Police budget and resources make it impossible to protect them all. In the meantime Laura's sleepwalker case is ramping up .
Wow what a fantastic book this is. I was totally gripped from the very first page. Adrenaline pumping suspense and more twists and turns than a big bowl of spaghetti I found myself guessing and changing my mind numerous times all the way through.
The characters continue to gain depth and I love how Stacey and Jay are brought more into the limelight as it adds interest and depth to the story.
An absolutely outstanding read and one that will stay with me for a long time.
Definitely 5 golden stars from me.
Try to tone it down next time, could you please?
I really enjoyed the story. It was well written. The descriptive narrative excellent and the characters all normal human beings. Some might find the main characters a bit too good to be true but I prefer this a lot more than some other authors who do insist on every character being a maverick with addictions of some description or having big chips on their shoulders.
An excellent read for lovers of Detective fiction.
The intruder sneaks into peoples homes whilst they are in bed and steal pictures of children aged 10. Now he has stepped up his crimanal activity by murdering an old woman....why? This story takes on a lot of twists and turns as another maniac comes into the frame but in a different guise....he is Laura's patient.
I can honestly say that readers of Joy Ellis will not be disappointed with this book.
5 ***** from this happy reader.
