Cry Baby – David Jackson (Callum Doyle Book 4)

It’s every mother’s nightmare – the abduction of her baby.

That’s how it starts for Erin Vogel when she is attacked and left unconscious in her apartment. When she awakes, it is to find that Georgia, her six-month-old daughter, has been taken.

But Erin is given a chance to get Georgia back. At an unthinkable price.

Like most mothers, she has always said she would do anything for her child. Now the strength of that bond is about to be put to the ultimate test.

And when her actions arouse the interest of a certain Detective Callum Doyle, one thing is inevitable: a confrontation that will be as explosive as it is unforgettable.

From the highly acclaimed author of Pariah, The Helper and Marked comes a nerve-shredding novel that questions the line we draw between good and evil.

My Review:  Firstly to anyone who follows my reviews you will know that I am obsessed with reading books in order and refuse to read anything in a series unless I’ve read the previous ones.  WHOOPS!  I had NO idea this was the 4th book in a series as there was absolutely zero indication on the blurb etc, so I happily downloaded and read it (in one sitting) and absolutely LOVED it.  It totally works as a standalone book and because the storyline focuses so much on Erin Vogel I wasn’t even aware of Callum Doyle being a recurring character.  This is a fabulously disturbing and twisty book and once I recovered from realising I had read it out of order I quickly downloaded the back catalogue and read them all IN ORDER!  Highly recommend this author.

About the Author:  David Jackson is the author of a series of crime thrillers featuring Irish-American NYPD Detective Callum Doyle. The first in the series, Pariah, was Highly Commended in the Crime Writers Association Debut Dagger Awards. It is published by Pan Macmillan. His writing influences include Ed McBain, Dennis Lehane, George Pelecanos, Robert Crais, Michael Connelly and Harlan Coben, amongst many others. His favourite quote about his work is one from the Guardian, now carried on the front of his novels: ‘Recalls Harlan Coben – though for my money Jackson is the better writer.’
