About The Book

The newspapers called it The Bad Place. A remote farm out on the Thames estuary, where six children were held captive for two weeks. Five of them got out alive.
That was twenty years ago. Now adults, they meet up annually to hold a candlelit vigil for their friend who died. The only rule is that no-one can talk about what happened the night they escaped. But at this year’s event, one of them witnesses a kidnapping. A young girl, Sammi, is bundled into a van in front of their eyes.
Is history repeating itself? Is one of them responsible? Or is someone sending them a twisted message?
DI Sasha Dawson, of Essex Police, is certain that the key to finding Sammi lies in finding out the truth about The Bad Place. But she also knows that with every second she spends trying to unlock the past, the clock ticks down for the missing girl..


My Thoughts

Everything started a few years ago when some teenagers were kidnapped, sadly not all of them survived. Since that moment, all the remaining meet once a year to remember those horrible days. But now, 20 years later a young girl has been kidnapped near their meeting point and some of them seem to have a connection with the missing girl. Is this success related to the past? There are so many lies and secrets hidden that you’ll not know who to believe!
Since the beginning you can feel that the 5 teenagers that survived the kidnapping have something to hide and are related to the kidnapping at the present, but as the story unfolds you see that there’s much more than you ever thought in the beginning. But this makes the story more engaging and interesting!
The main detective of the case at the present, D.I Sasha Dawson, was during the arrest of the kidnapper and she has a special connection with the victims. Sasha is really intelligent and brave, she is not scared to discover the truth and knows that the “friends” have something to hide, but knows that pressuring them will not have the answer, she has to wait. At the same time I’ll have to say that there’s something with Sasha that I didn’t like, she is tenacious and hard working at her job, but is negligent with her family. Because apart from the case we will read about Sasha’s family, that is totally a mess, with so many secrets and lies that she should start investigating them aside from the case!
The story is told between the past when the teenagers were kidnapped and the present, were there’s been another kidnapping.
This had been an interesting story, since the beginning you suspect of all the “friends” but you can feel that there’s something more and this makes the read engaging and compelling! I really can’t wait to know a read case with the D.I Sasha Dawson!
