THE TOY TAKER by Luke Delaney

Snatched in the dead of night from the safety of the family home. There’s no sign of forced entry, no sign of struggle, and no one heard or saw a thing.

DI Sean Corrigan needs to find four-year-old George Bridgeman before abduction becomes murder. But his ability to see into dark minds, to think like those he hunts, has deserted him – just when he needs it most.

As he investigates, another child vanishes -- and still no trace. What kind of monster is Corrigan hunting? And will he work it out in time to save the children?

Author Info: Luke Delaney joined the Metropolitan Police Service in the late 1980s and his first posting was to an inner city area of South East London notorious for high levels of crime and extreme violence. He later joined CID where he investigated murders ranging from those committed by fledgling serial killers to gangland assassinations.

My thoughts...

Sean Corrigan is investigating a missing child case when another child disappears. With few clues and Sean's ability to see what's in the minds of those he hunts wavering this case becomes more difficult. He takes us on a wild ride with his usual array of strange characters, outside interference, and emotional involvement.

The third book in the series will delight as you go deep into the criminal minds. This is an interesting tale and I'm looking forward to Luke's next book.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
