A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

Set in South London, Fiona Cummins' debut is insidious and icy in its depiction of a psychopath whose modus operandi could have Hannibal Lecter flinching and proves a worthy addition to the pantheon of malevolent grotesques of crime fiction. At times, it feels like Thomas Harris meets John Fowles' Collector, and this is no faint praise. Detective Sergeant Etta Fitzroy is still haunted by the disappearance of a little girl when another child goes missing, abducted outside her school gate and she manages to connect the cases. Her journey takes her into very dark places as a most sinister set-up eventually comes to light involving bone collecting and a series of fraying relationships mined by the weight of time and society. Cummins is particularly adept at portraying characters whose lives are on the verge of falling apart and generates a prevalent mood of gloom well in harmony with her creepy subject. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
