  • Baby X: Britain's Child Abusers Brought to Justice

    Baby X is a shocking and unforgettable story of how some of the UK's most disadvantaged children escaped their tormentors - and explains why some cases, similar to that of Baby P's, ended in tragedy. When super-tough cop Sergeant Harry Keeble announced he was joining Hackney's ailing Child Protection Team in 2000, his colleagues were astounded. Known as the 'Cardigan Squad', its officers were seen as glorified social workers dealing with domestics. The reality was very different.

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, the horrific honest details


    Which character – as performed by Damian Lynch – was your favorite?

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Host to be better than the print version?

    As my first download and listen, I am a little bored with the narrator. However I love the story and how it's keeping me wanting more.
