TICK TOCK TIME’S UP (DCI Priest Series - Book 2)
The Hardwicks are a relatively normal suburban family. Even after their young son, Joshua, recovered from a serious illness, Steven and Joanna Hardwick tried their best to ensure normality returned to their lives once more. Then Joshua was abducted.
DCI Priest and his colleagues pick up the investigation, with a single priority….find Joshua and return him to his parents. Alive.
When the kidnapper unexpectedly makes contact, everyone’s hopes are raised. That is until the Hardwicks realise that their nightmare isn’t over, but the worst is yet to come. With few clues to follow, Priest appears to be always one step behind. But one thing he knows for sure; the clock is ticking, and time is running out.
Tick Tock Time’s Up weaves together a sturdy police procedural with an emotional thriller, and will have you desperately clinging to the hope that Joshua is found, before the clock runs out.
“I'm an avid reader of Stephen King and Dean Koontz books and though this is more thriller rather than horror this was just as an enjoyable read as the best Koontz or King books. Kept me gripped from start to finish so much that I finished it in three days as I just couldn't put it down. Every spare minute I was picking it up to see what would happen next. Loved it and can’t wait for more books from this writer. I am usually quite disappointed with the endings of books too but not with this one!”
