The kidnapping of a 12-year-old diabetic boy has blown the case of some missing children wide apart and the finger is pointing at the heart of the Met. Boss Corrigan sends in the only cop in his team who would care more about the life of a boy than about her own career. Detective Inspector Hanlon. And then he sends someone to spy on her.

I really could not stop listening to this gripping thriller. Amazon lists this as the start of a series - I do hope so.
DI Hanlon, "the face of post feminist policing", as a colleague describes her, is a complex and fascinating character - a cross between Boudicca and Superwoman. She may cut corners and dispense her own rough justice but we are behind her all the way. The plot is dark and sometimes deeply disturbing focusing as it does on institutional corruption and paedophilia but it is executed in an intelligent and un salacious manner and keeps the reader hooked until the end.
Extremely well written and extremely well read - this is I hope a tantalizing foretaste of things to come.
