Alone, trapped in the darkness and with no way out, Bart Campbell knows that his chances of being found alive are slim.
Drugged and kidnapped, the realisation soon dawns that he’s been locked inside a shipping container far from his Edinburgh home. But what Bart doesn’t yet know is that he’s now heading for France where his unspeakable fate is already sealed…
DCI Ava Turner and DI Luc Callanach are working on separate cases that soon collide as it becomes clear that the men and women being shipped to France are being traded for women trafficked into Scotland.
With so many lives at stake, they face an impossible task – but there’s no option of failure when Bart and so many others will soon be dead…
Luc is in France working with Interpol when the body of a young Scot is found on a building site. Meanwhile Ava has a murder investigation going on in Edinburgh.
Their relationship has taken a nosedive if, indeed, it ever got off the ground. However, their cases are soon to collide and the race is on to find Bart if he’s still alive and to find a witness to yet another murder that takes place in Edinburgh.
On top of everything that’s happening at work. Natasha, Ava’s closest friend and also friends with Luc, makes a devastating revelation.
Helen Fields will have you gripped from start to finish in this complex, dark and tense tale of murder, kidnapping and trafficking. You will race through this very well written book wanting to know what happens. The build up and conclusion to the two police operations which take place one on each side of the Channel will keep you hooked to their conclusion.
Then, just when you take a breath and think that’s it the end, Natasha makes a proposal to Ava and Luc that’ll make for very interesting reading in what will surely be the next in this really good series.
This is the sixth book in the DI Callanach series which just gets better and better. I would highly recommend it.
