A CHILD’S GAME (Police Procedural-UK-Cont) – DNF
Connor, John – 3rd in series
Orion, 2006- Hardcover
DS Pete Baines is called in on a case where a man has been set afire and fallen/pushed/jumped from a balcony to his death. During the investigation, they cannot locate the man’s fiancée, Anna. Baines doesn’t realize that Anna is DS Karen Sharpe, who took her daughter and walked out on him several months before. Now Anna/Karen and her daughter are in the danger of their lives.
I generally read police procedurals and darker books, but even I couldn’t stay with this one. The rape/torture of a woman with the child there, and terrorizing of a child are beyond my limits.
