Nobody’s Child – Victoria Jenkins

On a damp October day, a body is found in an abandoned hospital, too burnt to be identified, but Detective Alex King knows that every victim is someone’s daughter or son.

Pushing aside her own troubles, Alex puts everything into finding the killer, but when someone else is found dead, she begins to suspect that the body in the hospital was just the first of many.

Just as Alex uncovers a heart-breaking link between the victims, she finds her own safety under threat. Is this a figure from her past hell-bent on revenge, or could the murderer be even nearer than she thinks?

Alex is running out of time. Can she catch the killer before they take another life, or will they get to her first?



My review

This book had my brain rattling in my head! It kept being thrown from left to right and back again in order to be able to follow this story and I mean this in a very positive way! There were so many characters and storylines that you were wondering how all this was going to come together., but it was never confusing. An author who can pull that off is a genius in my eyes.
You were focused on one thing and due to the short chapters, you were suddenly absorbed by another one. Sometimes my mouth fell open and a few OMG’s escaped.
I will be counting the days untill I can put my hands on part 4. I suppose it’s clear : I loved it! 5 stars.

Thank you, Victoria Jenkins, Bookouture and Netgalley.
