The fourth DI Charlie Resnick novel, from the master of British crime writing.
Little Gloria Summers' body has been found, hidden inside two plastic bin bags in a disused warehouse. Somewhere in the city, a child killer is on the loose, free to strike again. Then Emily Morrison vanishes on a sunny Sunday afternoon. A week later there are still no clues.
Inspector Charlie Resnick is as appalled as the media. But years of patient police work have taught him a thing or two - including his conviction that those who jump to easy conclusions are often the last ones to solve a crime.
British crime fiction's most impressive series of the last decade
Charlie Resnick is one of the most fully realised characters in modern crime fiction; complex and capable, a man who not only loves justice, jazz and cats, but one who can turn the construction of a sandwich into a work of art
