I grew up in the creative cauldron of nineties Manchester when Madchester rocked the charts and the Hacienda ruled clubland. The city has shaped me as a writer. I write thrillers and crime based on the fine folk of Manchester and Salford. The Little Girl Lost trilogy has however developed into an international thriller taking in Manchester, Morocco, London, Barcelona, Monza, Zurich, Moscow, Chechnya, Batumi and... Milton Keynes.

Child Number Three (Mystery & Thrillers)
7 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: Having graduated from Medical school, Amy Walker turns her attention to another lifelong ambition; finding out where she came from. Adopted by a loving couple, Amy believes she was orphaned in a coach crash in Tuscany. Her initial research tells her one thing; she was never even on that coach. Having exposed lie after lie, Amy confronts an evasive adoption agency and then her mother with fatal consequences. The discovery of a gun hidden in her father’s desk, a mysterious list of names and a passport stamp confirming his location at the time of the crash, all convince Amy she should stop at nothing to find out her truth. After journeying to the shanty towns and palaces of Morocco, more untruths lead her back to London and a dark Chechen underworld, where Amy discovers she was the third on a sinister, coded list of stolen children spanning two decades. Her quest alerts the gang to Amy's existence. Her quest is about much more than just her. The gang is still in operation and planning to strike again. Amy Walker must be silenced. Little girl lost must never be found.
