The Missing Ones Trilogy
The Missing Ones Trilogy by Ben Cheetham

1993. A trip to the cinema turns into a nightmare for Anna Young and her little sister Jessica, when two men throw thirteen-year-old Jessica into the back of a van and speed away.

1997. Fifteen-year-old Grace Kirby kisses her mum goodbye and heads off to school. It's a day like any other, except that Grace will never return home.

2012. Melinda (surname and age unknown) has been missing for weeks. The police would normally be all over it, but Melinda is a prostitute. Women in that line of work are the perfect victims. Most are runaways and drug addicts, leading transient existences. She probably just moved on.

Jessica, Grace and Melinda are not the only ones who have gone missing. There are others. Lots of them. On the surface, their disappearances don't appear to be connected. But one man is convinced otherwise.

When DI Jim Monahan is called to a fatal shooting, he comes to realise the case is only part of a bigger picture – one that he becomes hell-bent on exposing to the world. But a shadowy ring of powerful people will do anything to prevent that from happening. Over the course of three books, Jim's investigation leads him down a rabbit hole of murder, depravity and corruption that will test his faith in the law to breaking-point.

From the bestselling author of Blood Guilt and The Lost Ones, comes a hard-hitting trilogy that will have you questioning how far you would go to see justice done. 

Praise for Angel of Death, Justice for the Damned and Spider's Web:
'An incredible tour-de-force that will grip you like a vice and keep you in its tight hold until the very last page' CrimeSquad.

'Fast-paced... entertaining, violent and gritty... A thriller and a whodunit (just who is the Chief Bastard?)' Crime Thriller Hound.

'It's wonderfully written... you really can't afford to miss this' Falcata Times.

'The sheer relentless pace of a story as relevant as today's news sucks in the reader... this accomplished thriller builds to a bloody climax and Cheetham's denouement provides a satisfying final twist' CrimeReview.
