November in the West Country. Evening is closing in as murder detective Jack Caffery arrives to interview the victim of a car-jacking. He's dealt with routine car-thefts before, but this one is different. This car was taken by force. And on the back seat was a passenger. An eleven-year-old girl. Who is still missing.

Because the jacker seems to be ahead of the police - every step of the way...

"A particularly potent blend of terror and horror... not only grips her readers by the scruff of the neck but takes a firm hold on their intestines, too." The Times 20100213 "This is the fifth book in the Jack Caffery series and could well be the best ... A clever, stomach-churning, fast-paced, top-notch thriller" -- Angela Cooke Sunday Express "Where she differs from her peers is her almost outlandish imagination. Hayder pushes the boundaries of what's been said and written before... Brilliantly perceptive portrayals of the victims and very clever, sympathetic plotting, not to mention an acute capturing of police procedure - Gone is Mo Hayder's most compulsive thriller yet." Daily Mirror "Mo Hayder is not a woman to be trifled with. Her haute couture look belies her lacerating prose." -- Barry Forshaw Independent 20100210 "Hayder is one of the most skilled crime writers at escalating unbearable tension...nothing short of brilliant" DAILY MAIL
