Description - Gone by Mo Hayder
November in the West Country, and evening is closing in as murder detective Jack Caffery arrives to interview the victim of a car-jacking. He s dealt with routine car-thefts before, but this one is different. This car was taken by force. And on the back seat was a passenger. An eleven-year-old girl. Who is still missing. Sergeant Flea Marley is head of the Police Underwater Search Unit and has a theory about the car-jacker. He s done it before, she says to Caffery. Don t underestimate him because he s far more dangerous than everyone thinks. Before long the jacker starts to communicate with the police- It s started, he tells them. And it ain t going to stop just sudden, is it? And Caffery knows that he s going to do it again. Soon the jacker will choose another car with another child on the back seat. Caffery s a good and instinctive cop; the best in the business, some say. But this time he knows something s badly wrong. Because the jacker seems to be ahead of the police every step of the way
