When Detective Erika Foster receives a tip off that key evidence for a major narcotics case was stashed in a disused quarry on the outskirts of London, she orders for it to be searched. From the thick sludge the drugs are recovered, but so is the skeleton of a young child.
The remains are quickly identified as seven-year-old Jessica Collins. The missing girl who made headline news when she vanished twenty-six years ago.
As Erika tries to piece together new evidence with the old, she discovers a family harbouring secrets, a detective plagued by her failure to find Jessica, and the mysterious death of a man living by the quarry.
About the book
The plot follows Inspector Erika Foster who investigates the death of a little girl who went missing 26 years ago. In the course of the investigation, family secrets and conspiracies emerge, and Erika’s life is put in danger.
What I think
I liked the story. I don’t remember why I said in the previous book review, that this book was going to be the last, I have a scene in mind but I think I’m confusing it with another series. I definitely liked this more than the second book at least Erika is not excluded from the investigation and then investigated alone as in the first two books.
Right now I don’t own any other books in the series but if it happens I will most likely continue with the series perhaps by borrowing the books in the library.
