The girl was lying on the steps of the Foundling Museum, dressed all in white.
Four girls have disappeared in North London. Three are already dead.
Britain's most prolific child killer, Louis Kinsella, has been locked up in Northwood high-security hospital for over a decade. Now more innocents are being slaughtered, and they all have a connection to his earlier crimes.
Psychologist Alice Quentin is doing research at Northwood. She was hoping for a break from her hectic London life, but she'll do anything to help save a child - even if it means forming a relationship with a charismatic, ruthless murderer.
But Kinsella is slow to give away his secrets, and time is running out for the latest kidnap victim, who is simply trying to survive...
An enjoyably scary chiller ( Sunday Mirror)
An exciting story, very well told ( Literary Review)
One of the most absorbing books I've read in a long time. Alice Quentin is such a warm character - unique, yet very real. I loved the sense of menace too - perfectly thrilling. (Mel Sherratt, author of Taunting the Dead)
One of those books that leaves the reader wanting more. The life of each character is so vividly painted that even those in minor roles become intriguing, and the pace never slackens from the first page to the last. (Rachel Abbott, author of Only the Innocent)
Atmospheric and suspenseful ( Publishers Weekly)
Fans of the first two books starring Quentin won't be disappointed; the mood is rife with fear and sexual tension as Quentin and Burns attempt to catch a child killer before he strikes again ( Library Journal)
The suspense...will have nighttime readers pushing their bedtime well past reasonable limits ( Booklist)
Praise for Kate Rhodes ( .)
Kate Rhodes is the queen of atmospheric suspense. Her murder mysteries are extremely creepy and intriguing. ( Gumshoe Reviews)
Great twists, turns and surprises ( Sun)
Alice is a vividly realised protagonist whose complex and harrowing history rivals the central crime storyline (Sophie Hannah Daily Express)
An utterly brilliant, exhilarating read (Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner)
A pacy psychological thriller that makes good use of its London setting (Laura Wilson Guardian)
A fast-moving, entertaining mix of sex, suspense and serial killings ( Washington Post)
Quentin is one of a cast of really believable and entertaining characters and both the plot and the writing keep one thoroughly engaged throughout ( Daily Mail)
Like Nicci French, Kate Rhodes excels at character, pace and sense of place (Erin Kelly, author of The Poison Tree)
First-rate writing ( Publishers Weekly)
A terrific new heroine on the block ( Woman & Home)
Page-turning (Penny Hancock, author of Tideline)
