Nowhere to Run (DS Peter Gayle thriller series, Book 1) based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
The entire drama is hanging in the balance of the sons involvement. Yet the author abandoned us readers without a fimal determination of the degree of his sons guilt. C'mon, you can do better than this.
4.5 Stars DS Peter Gayle is returning to work several months after his teenage son disappeared. The boy has not been seen or heard from since. Gayle's plan was to ease back into work, however, a young girl has been reported missing. Rose Whitlock was abducted from her school that morning. Gayle is determined that no other child will remain missing on his watch. While investigating, another girl's body shows up. She's been assaulted and strangled. Has the abductor become a murderer? Or is there something else going on in this small town? Gayle and his team are doing everything they can, chasing down any lead no matter how small. What they find is astonishing ... evidently there is a ring of predators that have gone unnoticed ... until now. The case takes an unexpected turn as evidence points to Gayle's missing son .... This is the first book in series ... and it's off to a terrific beginning. Warning --- there is a cliff hangar. This will continue in Book 2 ... NO PLACE TO HIDE. I really like the characters, although Gayle's wife got a little on my nerves. But I cut her a lot of slack because of having a missing child. Gayle is putting up with a lot himself .... his wife sits and does nothing and then turns around and accuses him of all sorts of things. His team members are treating him with kid gloves, which does nothing but anger him. He's got a great team .... all of them are solid characters. Many thanks to the author / HQ Digital / Netgalley for the digital copy of this very well-written crime thriller. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
