Blood Runs Cold by Dylan Young is book 2 in the Detective Inspector Anna Gwynne series.
In this story DI Anna Gwynne who heads up the cold case unit has discovered the cold case she is investigating ties in with a string of child disappearances and a current active case of an abducted child.
I really enjoyed this book its part of a great new series that is thrilling and hard to put down. Actually it was bloody brilliant I was hanging on to every word that Dylan had written. The characters are great, the story line was tense and exciting and it had a feel of being really well written and thought out.
The pressure for Anna and her team builds throughout the book and towards the end I’m like please find the girl, please find the girl ….. I won’t tell you if they found the girl but you get my drift, it was tense and I was on the edge of my seat thinking OMG please find the girl before that monster kills her!
A very good book that I am certain that you will enjoy in fact I cannot wait until the next instalment.
Blood Runs Cold is released on 18th May, I highly recommend that you grab a copy it’s a great read and I don’t hesitate in giving it 5 stars.
Here is the publishers blurb on the book:
She had stopped crying. There was no window, the walls were smooth and it was quiet. She didn’t want to be alone. But she didn’t want him to come back.
On a bright spring morning, walkers find a tattered plastic bag half-buried in the rolling hills of Somerset. Inside lie a collection of bones; human, but too thin and light to be an adult’s.
The bones belong to Rosie Dawson, a little girl who disappeared ten years ago. Detective Anna Gwynne is back at work after a case that nearly cost her her life. The trail is stone cold, but Anna will stop at nothing to find the killer, and escape thoughts of her own dark past.
Then another little girl is abducted near a river bank on the hottest day of the year, and her sister can’t remember anything about the man who took her. Nobody thinks the cases are connected, but then Anna finds a photo of her that matches an old one of Rosie. In the same dark room. The same concrete walls. The same stony floor.
The killer is bragging.
With just two photos and a witness too young to help, can Anna find the killer in time to save a little girl’s life?
A heart-pounding thriller that will get right under your skin. If you love Karin Slaughter, Robert Dugoni and Angela Marsons you’ll love this killer crime thriller.
