Middle-class parents Victoria and Nicholas Foulkes are distraught when their children are kidnapped against Nicholas’ gambling debts. Penniless and desperate the couple of turn to crime as a way to raise the ransom. 
Hot on their heels is recently bereaved DI Harry Evans and his Major Crimes team. Evans is fighting against enforced retirement and his replacement – DI John Campbell – is foisted upon him along with other cases. If he must leave the police then he wants one last big case before he goes. 
In a race against time Victoria and Nicholas must evade the police while continuing to add to the ransom fund. If they don’t pay up on time the kidnappers have threatened to amputate their children’s limbs with an oxy-acetylene torch. Can they save their children before time runs out? 

 Calling all crime fans. If there is one book that I would recommend this month, SNATCHED FROM HOME would be it. This is the type of novel that will keep you up all night reading or taking to work with you. Graham Smith knows how to keep the crime moving, keeping all of his readers glued to every page. The central character has a secret one that he can’t share or won’t share with his wife. Until some men turn up unexpected at the family home. The husband and wife are left with a quick choice they have to face as their children are taken away and need urgently to raise money to get their children back.  This is a brilliant novel not to be missed by a very talented writer. Graham Smith has become one of my favourite authors after reading this moving crime novel.
