The shocking disappearance of little Katie Morgan two years ago horrified the nation. Snatched from a holiday beach-house in the sleepy Californian town of Carmel-by-the-Sea, six-year-old Katie was never seen again. One of the cops involved in the case is convinced the parents are to blame; but when they are completely exonerated by his own department, there is only one man he can turn to.
Maxwell Knight is a private investigator like no other. An ex-cop who threw in his badge when the corrupt system kept on letting criminals escape justice, Knight now works for himself, re-investigating cases which have been thrown out of court, or which never came to court in the first place. And when he’s convinced that someone is guilty, he serves them his own kind of justice, old-school style.
Knight is hired to prove the parents’ guilt, and to punish them as he sees fit. But as the investigation unfolds, he discovers that nothing is as it seems - and to find out what happened to the missing girl, he must reluctantly enter a world darker than any he has experienced before.
DISAPPEARED is the pulse-pounding first novel in the new Maxwell Knight crime series, and is your perfect SUMMER READ!
