Standing Still
by Caro Ramsay

When a baby is stolen from outside a shop, DI Costello deduces that this was no impulsive act as the police initially assumed, but something cold, logical, meticulously planned. DCI Anderson meanwhile is on the Cold Case Unit, reviewing the unsolved rape of a young mother. But what he learns about the attack reaches back into his own past.


The story moves along at a good clip right up to the finale, a macabre cross between a Shakespearean tragedy and a Hammer horror film

Publishers Weekly
