I wish I could give this book all the stars in this world.

The story revolves around Dr. Connie Woolwine (Forensic Psychologist) who is working with Detective Brodie Baarda on the case of Elspeth Dunwoody who was being kidnapped in Edinburgh. Prior to her kidnapping, a murder also took place. After both these incidents, a 12-year-old also went missing.

Connie believes that all these events are associated since no ransom have been made. She clearly states that the person who is behind all these events have something else in his head.

It took me a couple of chapters to completely get into the book but later I realised that this was an ultimate page turner. One of those sleep-snatchers. I promise, once you will pick this book, you will quickly become addicted to this story and won’t be able to put it down.

It was engaging, it was mysterious and at times even moving… it was so so so so gooood.

I make a list of the Best books that are set in a particular country or city and no doubt I am going to add this title in “Best Books set in Scotland” simply because this book deserves all the love.
