Nothing horrifies us quite as much as a child abduction, and Baby Evie was indeed snatched off the streets of Birmingham, England, leaving her hysterical teen mother behind. DI Sarah Quinn, aka The Ice Queen, leads the hunt as the hours tick by and the trail grows cold. Concurrently, independent TV news producer Caroline King fancies herself the expert who can flush out the killer. Each woman in her unique, irritating manner shuts the other out because of their shared history, letting ego and pride hamper progress in this hard-boiled, briskly paced procedural. Carter uses multiple points of view to help tighten the psychological tension.
This is just the ticket for readers captivated by human depravity. Crisply written with an electric pace--this story won't soon leave you. Compare to Denise Mina or recommend to across-the-pond Lisa Gardner's Detective D.D. Warren series fans. Carter is the author of the Bev Morriss series (Blood Money).
