This story will grip you. A 13-year-old boy wanders the streets searching for his twin, Alyssa, who disappeared a year ago.

A cop — detective Clyde Hunt — has ostracised his family because of his obsession with the case. The story is gritty; there’s murder, betrayal, and a twist no one sees coming.

There is also a chilling discovery of a graveyard of children in the backyard of a sex offender (reminiscent of the Nithari murders that shocked India in 2006). Pick it up if you’re looking for a good potboiler.
