Wednesday's Child

A chilling masterwork is back in print! When a seven-year-old girl is taken from her working class Yorkshire home by an attractive couple posing as social workers, Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks feels the child is doomed, particularly when no ransom demand is made. When the body of a young man is discovered in an abandoned mine, the kidnapping case takes an even more sinister twist.

Wednesday's child is full of woe ...

It was a crime of staggering inhumanity: a seven-year-old girl taken from her home right in front of her desperate working-class mother. With each passing moment, Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks realizes that the child's death becomes more and more likely. But there are worse fates than death in a nightmare world of human monsters and their twisted games. And the grisly discovery of a young man slain in a particularly savage fashion only starts the clock ticking faster, drawing Banks into the sordid depths of an evil more terrible and terrifying than anything he has ever encountered.
