When two social workers, investigating reports of child abuse, appear at Brenda Scupham's door, her fear of authority leads her to comply meekly with their requests. Even when they say that they must take her seven-year old daughter Gemma away for tests... It is only when they fail to return Gemma the following day that Brenda realizes something has gone terribly wrong. At the same time, Banks is investigating a particularly unpleasant murder at the site of an abandoned mine. Gradually, the leads in the two cases converge, guiding Banks to one of the most truly terrifying criminals he will ever meet...

This is (I think) the 6th book in this wonderful mystery series. They are set in northern England in a small town in the Yorkshire Dales. I've read almost all the books in the series and found them all well-written and engrossing. Some are darker than others.

This is a tough read for anyne who loves children, for it is about an abduction. There are no graphic details, but the reader can imagine the child's feelings. Interesting characters and good plot.
