Suffering Of Strangers

£8.99

When a six-week-old baby is stolen from outside a village shop DI 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 impulse 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 stuck, Anderson looks for a pattern. But when he does find a connection, it reaches back into his own past.

Description

LONGLISTED FOR THE McILVANNEY PRIZE 2018

‘Brilliant . . . twisting the tension tauter with each page’ Guardian

‘The dialogue crackles and the search for the killer has surprising twists and turns’ Observer

DI Costello faces a disturbing child abduction case; a six-week-old has been stolen and replaced with another baby. The swap took cold and meticulous planning, so Costello treads the seedy, Glaswegian backstreets for answers. She’s convinced that more than one young life is at stake.

Promoted into the Cold Case Unit, Colin Anderson reviews the unsolved rape of a young mother, whose attacker is still out there. Each case pulls Anderson and Costello in the same direction and, as their paths keep crossing, they begin to suspect their separate cases are dangerously entwined.
