MY REVIEW 

Victoria and Nicholas’ two children have been abducted by a ruthless gang, they are demanding the repayment of Nicholas’ gambling debts within a week……or the children will suffer.

But even after selling their possessions they do not have enough….so with no other option they turn to crime…..they need money fast.

Meantime, DI Harry Evans is due to retire, much to the relief of the senior officers in charge….he’s as un-pc as they come and doesn’t always stick to the rules or the law for that matter to catch the criminals. His humour brings a lighter note to this tense tale though.

Harry is working on his last case, a spate of robberies and thefts…..this eventually leads him to Victoria and Nicholas and he learns of their kidnapped children, but he has a plan to rescue them…..will he manage in time?

This is a fast paced, heart pounding thriller that keeps you on your toes. With great characters and a twisty, nerve wracking plot to keep you hooked from the very start. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Thank you to Anne at Random Things Tours for the opportunity to take part in this blog tour, for the promotional material and a copy of Snatched From Home. This is my honest and unbiased review.
