A daughter gone. A father hunting. Two lives at stake. From the CWA GOLD DAGGER AWARD-winning author of CAPITAL PUNISHMENT.

YOU WILL NEVER FIND ME. When Charlie Boxer reads this note from his daughter in her empty room, the words only reinforce what he already knows: he's always got his priorities wrong. His ex-wife, DCI Mercy Danquah, and their daughter, Amy, have learned to live without him.

Boxer's work in high-stakes kidnap and recovery has taken him to places from which no man returns unscathed. And Amy has been around enough police business to plan the perfect disappearing act. But what Amy doesn't realise - and Boxer knows only too well - is how quickly a life can fall apart when you're living under the radar.

Charlie follows Amy's tracks from London to Madrid - but will the trail last long enough for him to face up to the true meaning of the sins of the fathers?

"YOU WILL NEVER FIND ME delivers a serious adrenaline rush and a raft of memorable characters." — IRISH INDEPENDENT
A double plot is always a gamble, because the story lines inevitably become rivals for the reader's interest. Here, there's a clear winner. Although the London kidnapping is typically well researched and replete with strong characters, it can't compete with the more visceral allure of Boxer's search in Madrid for Amy and revenge. — SUNDAY TIMES
"Written with Wilson's trademark lucidity and style this is as much a thrilling page-turner as a meditation on loss and what we would do for the ones we love." — CATHOLIC HERALD
[A] gripping thriller. — THE SUN
A very high-class thriller, as readers expect from Wilson, performed by characters who develop and change realistically in response to events. — MORNING STAR
"An absolutely outstanding second book of a new series by an very experienced writer... Strongly recommended." — EUROCRIME
An exceptional page-turner... If you haven't read Robert Wilson before the Charlie Boxer series is a great place to start and I can guarantee you will be diving into his previous work straight after. — BITE THE BOOK
Robert Wilson ratchets up the pace, ups the ante on the action and keeps you plugged into a story with hidden depths. — NORTHERN ECHO
The London kidnapping is typically well researched and replete with strong characters, it can't compete with the more visceral allure of Boxer's search in Madrid for Amy and revenge. — SUNDAY TIMES
Written with Wilson's trademark lucidity and style, this is as much a thrilling page-turner as a meditation on loss and what we would do for the ones we love. — Stav Sherez, CATHOLIC HERALD
To call this a thriller is to cheapen Wilson's 'tour de force' about this small, dysfunctional group of people who keep each other at arm's length whilst drowning in their own isolation. I was totally consumed by 'You Will Never Find Me' and this level of writing can only be produced by a master of his craft. This is an astonishing and thought provoking novel of the highest order. — CRIMESQUAD
Wilson is a master thriller writer and he proves it again with his new novel... If you haven't read Robert Wilson before the Charlie Boxer series is a great place to start. — BITETHEBOOK.COM
A story with hidden depths. — NORTHERN ECHO
A very high-class thriller, as readers expect from Wilson, performed by characters who develop and change realistically in response to events. — MORNING STAR
"This fantastic story is a roller coaster of sheer terror and is definitely not one to miss!" — BRADFORD TELEGRAPH & ARGUS
An absolute humdinger of a follow up to Capital Punishment... Superbly tense." — PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH
"The broken family at the heart of this mystery breathes life into this intriguing tale." — BIG ISSUE

'My mum always said, a fistful of rings is as good as a knuckleduster' As the Great Smog falls over London in 1952, Florrie Palmer has a choice to make. Will she stay with the Cutters, a gang of female criminals who have terrorized London for years and are led by her own mother? Or leave it all behind to make a safer, duller life with the man she loves? And what will she do if she's too crooked to go straight, and too good to go bad? Over the next five days, Florrie will have to find her own path and the courage to stumble along it - in a fog so thick that she can't see her own feet. Following the last days of a crumbling female gang in post-war London, this is a story of family, of love, of finding your way, and of deciphering a route through the greyest areas of morality.

'Fascinating' LA Times '[Keyes] has carried it off brilliantly, bringing not only a fine clarity but a special warmth and empathy' Washington PostBilly Milligan was a man tormented by twenty-four distinct personalities battling for supremacy - a battle that culminated when he awoke in jail, arrested for the kidnap and rape of three women. In a landmark trial, Billy was acquitted of his crimes by reason of insanity caused by multiple personality disorder - the first such court decision in history. Among the twenty-four are: Philip, a petty criminal; Kevin, who dealt drugs; April, whose only ambition was to kill Billy's stepfather; Adalana, the shy, affection-starved lesbian who 'used' Billy's body in the rapes that led to his arrest; David, the eight-year-old 'keeper of the pain'; and the Teacher, the sum of all Billy's alter egos fused into one. In The Minds of Billy Milligan, Daniel Keyes brings to light the most remarkable and harrowing case of multiple personality ever recorded.
