As the terrible truth emerges, the inquiry becomes a race against time before another child becomes a victim.

John Connor left his job as a barrister to write full time. During the fifteen years of his legal career he prosecuted numerous homicide cases in West Yorkshire and London. He advised the police in numerous proactive drugs and organised crime operations, many involving covert activity. He now lives in Brussels with his wife and two children.
There is much to admire in Connor's book... an adult story of sordid crime, a story of horror behind closed curtains of the type that is all too common in our tabloids as a vulnerable woman is destroyed by those who should protect her — Shots Magazine
Expect Connor to become an "overnight" British crime writing sensation soon. Meanwhile to the delight of those already in the know, here's another excellent thriller — Peterborough Evening Telegraph
