*****************

'He was her child. The only one she'd ever have. It would kill her to learn that he was missing.'

Alex arrives home from holiday to find that her ten-year-old son Daniel has disappeared.

It's the first case together for Northumbria CID officers David Stone and Frankie Oliver.

Stone has returned to his roots with fifteen years' experience in the Met, whereas Oliver is local, a third generation copper with a lot to prove, and a secret that's holding her back.

But as the investigation unfolds, they realise the family's betrayal goes deeper than anyone suspected. This isn't just a missing persons case. Stone and Oliver are hunting a killer.

An unbelievably gripping game of cat and mouse from an award-winning, expert author. Fans of Ragdoll by Daniel Cole, The Blood Road By Stuart Macbride, A Daedly Distance by LT Ryan, Stormbound by AP Bateman and The Confession by Jo Spain will love The Lost.
