Detective Constable Ash Henderson has a dark secret ... Five years ago his daughter, Rebecca, went missing on the eve of her thirteenth birthday. A year later the first card arrived: homemade, with a Polaroid picture stuck to the front -- Rebecca, strapped to a chair, gagged and terrified. Every year another card appears, each one worse than the last. The tabloids call him The Birthday Boy. Hes been snatching girls for twelve years, always in the run-up to their thirteenth birthday, sending the families his home-made cards showing their daughters being slowly tortured to death. But Ash hasnt told anyone about Rebeccas birthday cards -- they all think shes just run away from home -- because if anyone finds out, hell be taken off the investigation. And hes sacrificed too much not to be there when they finally catch the psycho who killed his little girl ...
It’s hard to like this book and it’s a slog to get into it, but gradually the pace quickens and it draws you in until you wholeheartedly join the race to the climax.
