Publisher's Summary

When a six-week-old baby is stolen from outside a village shop, Detective Inspector Costello quickly surmises there's more to this case than meets the eye. 

As she questions those involved, she uncovers evidence that this was no impulsive act as the police initially assumed, but something cold, logical, meticulously planned. Who has taken Baby Sholto, and why? 

Colin Anderson meanwhile is on the Cold Case Unit, reviewing the unsolved rape of a young mother back in 1996. Convinced this wasn't the first - or last - time the attacker struck, Anderson looks for a pattern. But when he does find a connection, it reaches back into his own past....

Irritating narrator

I'm sad to see that Cathleen McCarron has been retained to narrate so many of these books, she is enough to put many off, she has a weird lisping way of speaking (yet with no lisp) with an accent that does not ring at all true, the story is as good as most of the Anderson and Costello books but I did find my mind wandering thanks to Ms McCarrron's voice which is not really, or even at all, engaging. I find it better to read the kobo version where I can if Ms McCarron is narrating.

Another fantastic book

I had a break in between
But came back and was then in the edge of my seat.
Excellent narration as usual.
