Dying for Christmas Tis the Season to be Dead by Tammy Cohen
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A dark, mixed-up, pretty terrifying kidnapping tale with some horrific twists and an ending you really do not see coming. Dominic kidnaps Jessica while she is shopping in Oxford Street. Right from the start his motive seems strange but he is obviously a psychopath so a motive is irrelevant. He has a wife who disappeared, we assume dead, and it seems Jessica has only twelve days to live before he will kill her too. Missing persons detective Kim is on the case and what a case. Talk about bluff and double cross and treachery and deceit, this is great stuff really nicely worked out.

If you like Tammy Cohen you might also like to read books by Emma Kavanagh, Helen Fitzgerald and Sophie Hannah.
