I've read a few of these over the years, and thoroughly enjoy them. Good police procedurals, believable characters, and on the edge of your seat plots. This one concerns a child who is "borrowed by social workers" (so says the mother) and then not returned. Inspector Banks and team are led a merry chase by an especially ugly, nasty, and clever villain to a not predictable (at least by me) ending. I'm going to try to catch up/keep up with this series during the next two years of reading. I just looked and there are 22 of these - maybe I'd better make that 5 years. ( )
