Lost Girls – Angela Marsons

Yet another gripping thriller from this author who is one of my favourites and never disappoints. This book concerns two young girls who go missing from a leisure centre as they are waiting to be picked up by a parent. The kidnapper uses a third person to create a distraction in order that the girls can be snatched by someone they think they can trust. As the hours tick by the two sets of parents, who decide to stay in the same house, are pitted against each other, which creates a great tension filled atmosphere in the book. DI Kim Stone goes over and above the call of duty, despite her personal deficits, to try to rescue the girls as the present case has links to a previous one in which only one of two snatched girls is returned. In the course of the investigation these links turn out to be invaluable in tracing the culprit as does the third person used in the distraction. The twist at the end concerning who is actually involved is both surprising and clever! I can thoroughly recommend the books in this series and hope you will enjoy them all.
