Patrick is charming with a great smile, He likes the ladies and the ladies likes him, too much which has gotten him into untold trouble. He's a journalist heavily involved in a charity of sorts in Malawi.
Someone has kidnapped Patrick. He's in deep, deep trouble. He has many enemies who might want him to come to harm .. or disappear forever. Lots of suspects who have legitimate reasons for Patrick to disappear .... but who has taken Patrick? Is he even still alive?
He owes a loan shark a lot of money that he cannot pay back. He stole money from one lady he was sleeping which terminated that relationship immediately. He took up with another lady who is now pregnant. Her brother would love nothing more than to 'take care' of Patrick. His current lady love is the very married Minister of Health. Her husband received an anonymous letter announcing the affair and he's called and left messages on Patrick's phone.
And to top it off, he has discovered a scandal that will take down the charity for children that he loves. Seven young boys have gone missing from the home ..... and there are seven huge payments in the accounts. He has seen 2 of the boys in the UK and USA. So how did they get there ... Patrick suspects child-trafficking.
This is a character driven crime thriller featuring Detective LB Stewart and Summer Morris, a freelance photographer. All the secondary roles are well defined and are able to hold one's attention from start to finish. It is fast-paced with a few twists and turns that keeps the reader engaged.
Their relationship hadn`t ended well after he cleared out her bank account but for all that she can`t just do nothing and decides to investigate after failing to get the polices interest.
Summer visits Patricks flat and foolishly removes items in her effort to discover what has happened to him.
Patrick although a bit of a charmer isn`t the most loved man and has made enemies as a result of his numerous affairs and borrowing money from loan sharks and gambling.He does however have a caring side and is involved with a charity providing for and educating the poor children of Malawi.
Summer realising she can`t do this alone finally manages to gain the attention of DS L B Stewart.
This book is a race against time to discover Patricks whereabouts and hopefully to find him alive.
Summer and LB discover quite a few people in the uk who it seems wouldn`t be sorry if Patrick was permanently removed from their lives.
The possibility that child traffickers in Malawi could also be involved in his disappearance.
I really enjoyed this book it held my interest right up to the very end, it has a well thought out plot and interesting characters.
I would definately recommend reading it and thanks to Joffe books for the opportunity to read it as an ARC..
The author may have written this as a one-off, but has opened the door to possible sequels. The partnership between Summer and LB is in its beginning phases, and I for one would love to read of their further adventures. In addition, there is room for a follow-up on the situation in Malawi. I will read whatever Ms. Fleet produces next, but I would really enjoy a sequel.
I am grateful to Joffe for providing me an advanced copy of this book, and in return this is my honest review.
I voluntarily chose to read this ARC and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased
