The Suffering of Strangers
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.


““ A taut, shattering, mesmerizing page-turner that definitely kicks this series up several notches””


““Mystery and suspense fans will be thrilled to discover this British procedural series, with this latest addition hard to put down””

Library Journal

““The snarky banter between Costello and practically everyone she encounters is amusing and increasingly endearing. She propels the narrative, pulling Anderson and the other team members along in her wake. Fans of contemporary British police procedurals will be more than satisfied.””
