When an 8 year old Josie Masters sees a young Dylan Jones, wearing a red football shirt being led away with a clown at a fair when she is a child, she tries to let people know but it is too late and he disappears.
30 years later Josie is working as a police officer in Bath. The remains of a child’s body is found with the scraps of a red shirt and it looks as though Dylan has finally been found.
Then another child disappears, apparently also taken by a clown.
This is a fast paced crime thriller which twists and turns all over the place and the final few chapters meant I couldn’t put it down. The ending is actually quite scary and Josie is a well written and believable character. A great debut novel!
Thank you to Avon books for sending me this book as part of an Instagram book tour.
Incidentally, I thought it’d be fun to have a clown mask in this picture – DON’T Google “Clown Masks”. I didn’t have a phobia but I may do now!
