"Two girls go missing. Only one will return.
The couple that offers the highest amount will see their daughter again. The losing couple will not. Make no mistake. One child will die.
When nine-year-old best friends Charlie and Amy disappear, two families are plunged into a living nightmare. A text message confirms the unthinkable; that the girls are the victims of a terrifying kidnapping.
And when a second text message pits the two families against each other for the life of their children, the clock starts ticking for D.I. Kim Stone and the squad.
Seemingly outwitted at every turn, as they uncover a trail of bodies, Stone realises that these ruthless killers might be the most deadly she has ever faced. And that their chances of bringing the girls home alive, are getting smaller by the hour…
Untangling a dark web of secrets from the families’ past might hold the key to solving this case. But can Kim stay alive long enough to do so? Or will someone’s child pay the ultimate price?"
I don't think any other author has shot to the top of my FAVOURITE AUTHOR list so quickly before. Angie took my breath away with her first novel, refused to give it back with her second and now, once again I have been left gasping by the sheer brilliance of Lost Girls.
A highly charged emotional read, that leaves the reader thinking what if?, this book takes the reader on a huge roller coaster ride - it's fast paced, tense and thrilling and exactly what we've come to expect from Angie, as readers.
Kim Stone is as fantastic as ever - sharp and edgy, brave and feisty, she's definitely the one you want on your side. As a reader, I LOVE her - she's like the cool kid that everyone wants to be, but I love how Angie give her little quirks that make her human (like her inability to bake...but her determination to keep on trying!).
All I can say is: BRAVO Angie, you've done it again! Now, when can we expect Book 4?
Lost Girls is out now and you can get it here:
