Today is my stop on the blog tour for Hush Little Baby by Jane Isaac. This was released on the 23rd of July published by Aria Fiction.
Someone stole a baby…
One sunny day in July, someone took three-month-old Alicia Owen from her pram outside a supermarket. Her mother, Marie, was inside. No one saw who took Alicia. And no one could find her.
They silenced her cry…
Fifteen years later, a teenager on a construction site sees a tiny hand in the ground. When the police investigate, they find a baby buried and preserved in concrete. Could it be Alicia?
But the truth will always out.
When Alicia disappeared, the papers accused Marie of detachment and neglect. The Owens never got over the grief of their child’s disappearance and divorced not long after. By reopening the case, DC Beth Chamberlain must reopen old wounds. But the killer may be closer than anyone ever suspected…
The latest crime thriller featuring Family Liaison Officer DC Beth Chamberlain, Hush Little Baby is tightly plotted, fraught with tension and impossible to put down. Perfect for fans of Cara Hunter and K.L. Slater.
For this third instalment in the DC Beth Chamberlain series, Jane has crafted a harrowing story that heats up a 15 year old cold case, when the body of a baby is found entombed in concrete on a construction site.
The story is hard hitting and confrontational, but with Jane’s experience as an established author, she deals with it extremely well. Nothing in the story is sugarcoated, which does make for a gut wrenching, realistic and compelling read.
With each book that is released, I just love Beth more and more. She is the heart and soul of the series and is always such a pleasure to read. Her mettle is definitely tested this time around, when the case becomes personal in a terrifying way and that also brings with it an evil back from her past.
What makes this series stand out for me is that it is told from Beth’s perspective, as a family liaison officer and not from a police detective’s, which does make for a point of difference and a nice change.
Jane Isaac is on fire with this series and Hush Little Baby is another outstanding addition to it. Each story can be read as a stand-alone and is easy to follow along, but it does make for a better reading experience starting with book one.
Hush Little Baby is a gripping, thrilling and twisty read that I could not get enough of which I highly recommend and I can’t wait to see what Jane comes up with next! Thanks for another brilliant read Jane.
