A Child's Game Summary

A Child's Game by John Connor

In the early hours of the morning in a luxury Leeds penthouse, a terrified victim is doused with petrol, set alight, and thrown out of a ninth-floor window. The victim is a wealthy property developer - but his lover and her daughter have both gone missing.

Meanwhile, security services are looking for DC Karen Sharpe who walked out eighteen months ago. But they are not the only ones desperate to find her. She is being pursued by some of the most dangerous people she has ever encountered - and to them, human life means nothing at all . . .

A Child's Game Reviews

It'll be a rare reader able to put A CHILD'S GAME down after a chapter or so -- Barry Forshaw * The Express *
A beguiling complex character, perfectly suit to [Connor's] taut thrillers * The Mirror *
Connor's inside knowledge of the judicial system coupled with his gritty, fast-paced narrative and believable characters make for an edgy and down-right modern crime series which deserves to be a classic of the genre. * Bradford Telegraph & Argus *
A riveting tale with a thrilling climax * Yorkshire Post *
From the horrifying defenestration in the opening pages to the ultra-violent denouement, Leeds-based barrister John Connor drives his complex tale of secrecy and betrayal along at a cracking pace. Not for the faint-hearted but highly recommended * Irish Independent *
