The Number One bestselling crime thriller from the award-winning Stuart MacBride. A bloody, brilliant and brutal story of murder, kidnap and revenge.
Detective Constable Ash Henderson has a dark secret�
Five years ago his daughter, Rebecca, went missing on the eve of her thirteenth birthday. A year later the first card arrived: home-made, with a Polaroid picture stuck to the front � Rebecca, strapped to a chair, gagged and terrified. Every year another card: each one worse than the last.
The tabloids call him �The Birthday Boy�. He�s been snatching girls for twelve years, always in the run-up to their thirteenth birthday, sending the families his home-made cards showing their daughters being slowly tortured to death.
But Ash hasn�t told anyone about Rebecca�s birthday cards � they all think she�s just run away from home � because if anyone finds out, he�ll be taken off the investigation. And he�s sacrificed too much to give up before his daughter�s killer gets what he deserves�
