From the Cradle is the first in a new series – our first police procedural, but with strong elements of psychological thriller – featuring Detective Inspector Patrick Lennon, who works for one of the Metropolitan Police’s MITs (Murder Investigations Team) in south-west London.
Here’s the blurb:
The first child was taken from her house.
The second from his mother’s car.
The third from her own bedroom…
When Helen and Sean Phillips go out for the evening, leaving their teenage daughter babysitting little Frankie, they have no idea that they are about to face every parent’s greatest fear.
Detective Inspector Patrick Lennon is hopeful that the three children who have been abducted in this patch of south-west London will be returned safe and well. But when a body is found in a local park, Lennon realizes that time is running out – and that nothing in this case is as it seems…
Blending police procedural and psychological thriller, FROM THE CRADLE will have every parent checking that their children are safe in their beds…then checking again.
The second DI Lennon novel, THE BLISSFULLY DEAD, will be published later this year.
