A new case for Fennimore & Simms…
A mother and daughter are snatched on their drive home from a cinema. The crime has a number of chilling similarities to a cold case Professor Nick Fennimore had been lecturing on. Then Fennimore begins receiving taunting messages – is he being targeted by the kidnapper?
Meanwhile, a photograph emailed from Paris could bring Fennimore closer to discovering the fate of Suzie, his own daughter, now missing for six years. He seeks help from his old friend, DCI Kate Simms, recently returned from the US. But Kate is soon blocked from the investigation… A mother and child’s lives hang in the balance as Fennimore and Simms try to break through police bureaucracy to identify their abductor.
‘Simms and Fennimore are complex, compelling and just plain marvellous.’ Jeffery Deaver
Mo Hayder raves about Believe No One
An email from Mo Hayder is always welcome – we’ve been mates since we met just prior to the her launch of her chilling debut, Birdman,fifteen years ago. But when I saw the subject line, ‘Good God!’, I was a tad anxious about opening it (this is Mo Hayder, after all). I clicked the mouse with some trepidation – and nearly had a seizure.
She wrote that she had just finished Believe No One: ‘Not only is this the best book you have written, it is the best book I have read in years,’ she said. ‘If you don’t walk off with a string of prizes for it there is no justice in the world.’ When I’d got my heart-rate down to sub-coronary status, I replied to ask if I could quote her. She phoned me with more praise! Among her comments were: ‘The characters are memorable and the plot-lines live in the mind.’ And the one that really knocked the wind out of me: ‘I don’t have enough superlatives to describe how I feel about this book.’
