When a six-week-old baby is stolen from outside a village shop, Detective Inspector Costello quickly surmises there's more to this case than meets the eye. As she questions those involved, she uncovers evidence that this was no impulsive act as the police initially assumed, but something cold, logical, meticulously planned. Who has taken Baby Sholto ? and why?

Colin Anderson meanwhile is on the Cold Case Unit, reviewing the unsolved rape of a young mother back in 1996. Convinced this wasn't the first ? or last - time the attacker struck, Anderson looks for a pattern. But when he does find a connection, it reaches back into his own past . . .

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/NetGalley, Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

My Thoughts
Where the hell have I been!? I am new to Caro Ramsay’s Anderson & Costello series and I am so sad that I’ve missed out on some amazing stories! I mean seriously. This book had me all twisted up inside and taken on an incredible roller coaster of twists and turns. It’s a fast-paced, page turning, edge of your seat police procedural that will leave you begging for more. Literally.
From the beginning, Ramsay draws the reader in with well chiseled characters. The emotions instantly fly with this one. I mean seriously. I was angry with Roberta almost instantly for one little thing she did that started the intense, white knuckle gripping, gotta-see-what-happens-next events of this story. Just when I think I would have it all figured out, Ramsay threw me another twist to the story and bam. I had to back track and start all over again to see if I could figure it out.
That’s an incredible 5 star worthy read, if you ask me. Filled with some hard hitting life lessons, and gripping characters, Ramsay knows what to throw new readers to make them want to come back. This is a series that I will be going back and reading from start to finish. Ramsay will have you captivated, fully, from first page to last and won’t let your shackles go until you reach the very last word.
