‘Nobody understands the many faces of cops better than Mari Hannah’ – Val McDermid


The gripping first novel in the exciting new stone and oliver series, by award-winning author Mari Hannah.

Alex should never have agreed to the spur-of-themoment holiday with her sister. Seven days felt like a year without Daniel, her ten-year-old son. This was the first time they had been apart since he was born and her husband had convinced her it was a good idea.

It was a bad idea.

Daniel has gone missing.

As local CID officers, David Stone and Frankie Oliver have been assigned their first case together. A small boy’s fate lies in their hands and the pressure is on.

And when someone close to Daniel is found dead, they begin to feel the heat.

‘Mari Hannah writes with a sharp eye and a dark heart’ Peter James

‘a blistering start to Hannah’s new detective series’ Eva Dolan
