I loved read reading this well written tough and gritty thriller. It’s Halloween and people of Cork are out partying. A young girl leaves a club crying, she calls for a taxi to take her home. A young boy who she doesn’t even know offers her a lift to her house. She is not driven home, but dropped off at St Giles Clinic. The driver of the car slowly edge the rear wheel over her legs. The young girl wakes up in the clinic, but everything about clinic doesn’t seem good. Another part of this exciting thriller is a gang are stealing dogs in the city. The gang terrorizes a dog kennel owner in Cork. The dognappers rapes the owners wife. When the gang go to take the owners dogs, the owner takes his revenge and shoots one of them. DS Katie Maguire and her team are flat out trying to find the dognappers and the missing young girl. With questions being asked what really happened at the kennel when the owner shot one of the gang.
