If you love a good suspense story that deals with modern-day issues using the tools of our technological times, then you’ll enjoy the stories written by me, Linda Coles.

If I had to suggest books you might have read that would see you enjoying these, I’d say the stories and writing are a mixture of Ian Rankin with a dash of Rachel Abbott and a splash of James Patterson. These wonderful people are also among my most favourite authors and I’m working my way through their back-lists.

The DS Amanda Lacey series starts with The Controller, but don’t feel you have to start at the beginning if a title grabs you, each book works well as a standalone. There's a FREE copy waiting for you below.

I hope you enjoy the characters in the stories; I’ve loved creating each and every one of them. Lastly, every author appreciates the reviews readers leave on Amazon, so please spare a moment to give the book a star rating and a few words when you can.

An abandoned infant. Three victims stolen in the night. Can one overworked detective find the Christmas connection to save them all?

 London, 1999. Short-staffed during Christmas week, Detective Jack Rutherford can’t afford to spend time on the couch with his beloved wife. With a skeleton staff, he’s forced to handle a deserted infant and a trio of missing girls almost single-handedly. Despite the overload, Jack has a sneaking suspicion that the baby and the abductions are somehow connected…
