Death Ride
by Nick Oldham

An unwelcome face from the past at a local fair leads Henry Christie on a white-knuckled race against time to find a missing girl.

On the third day of the Kendleton Country Fair, thirteen-year-old Charlotte Kirkham goes missing. Retired Detective Superintendent Henry Christie is there as a volunteer steward, but Charlotte’s sudden disappearance isn’t the only thing troubling him. The man with the burger van looks familiar . . . for all the wrong reasons.

Leonard Lennox was jailed for twelve years for abducting a young girl. Henry rescued her, unharmed, and helped put Leonard behind bars. Now he’s out, with his own criminal outfit, old scores to settle, and a son who was last seen talking to Charlotte at the fair. Is history about to repeat itself? Henry is soon drawn into another hair-raising, pulse-pounding race against time, and the stakes couldn’t be higher. Can he find Charlotte before tragedy strikes?


“This edge-of-the seat narrative, with constantly ratcheting tension, features a twist-a-minute plot and a thoroughly unexpected shock ending”

Booklist on Tranfusion

“Understated exposition and violent set pieces, all professionally handled throughout”

Kirkus Reviews on Transfusion

“Fans of Oldham’s Henry Christie series will already know to expect an action-packed, violence-filled, edge-of-the-seat thriller, while readers not yet familiar with this excellent series have a real treat in store . . . A meaty plot full of white-knuckle suspense makes this a cracking-good read”

b>Booklist on Bad Timing

“Taut . . . Fully realized characters complement the well-crafted plot. Oldham shows no signs of losing steam'”
