The Dying Light :Two missing children. A heartless killer. A disgraced detective.
DI Jake Sawyer is out in the cold. As winter descends on the Peak District, he finds himself suspended from the force, accused of murder.
When two young children go missing, feared abducted, Sawyer must improvise to help solve the mystery. As the bodies of adults start to appear in remote locations, Sawyer suspects a chilling connection to the missing children. With time running out on his bail, he must fight to crack the cases and clear his name.
But then Sawyer uncovers the shocking truth behind his mother’s murder, thirty years earlier: a truth that leads him to question his sanity, and threatens to tear his world apart.
“Didn’t feel like they had any supporting evidence. They were mostly trying to put me at the scene. They knew that I knew. Waste of energy all round.’ The kettle clicked off and they shared a moment of silence. ‘It’s a good thing.’
‘It means I’m not going crazy. It means I’m right. It means my mum’s killer is still out there. Someone was following Klein and didn’t like the idea that we were getting close to the truth.’
She squinted at him. ‘Will Keating keep you under surveillance?’
‘I would, if it were up to me. I’d put Moran on it. Not my biggest fan. Good copper. Bit unreconstructed.’ Sawyer turned away and prepared his tea.
Maggie stood. ‘So what are you going to do with yourself?’
‘Wait until they either charge me or give me my warrant card back.’
‘How long could that take?’
‘Couple of weeks. Maybe three.’ He looked over his shoulder. ‘And, yes, I’m still seeing Alex. Appointment on Thursday.’
Maggie smiled. ‘That’s good. You’re going to need her.”
