Synopsis

Unquiet Souls: a crime thriller you won't be able to put down.

"A must read for all crime fiction fans."

Book Description: 

What is the link between the abduction of a little girl and a dead prostitute?

When the body of a prostitute is found, followed by the discovery of children locked in an attic, DI Gus McGuire is handed the case. But what at first appears to be a simple murder soon turns into an international manhunt for the members of a twisted child trafficking ring.

McGuire who is suffering with his own emotional problems, must pick his way through the web of deceit and uncover the truth in time before the body count rises.

Can McGuire identify The Matchmaker before it’s too late? And can he trust those he is working with?

Unquiet Souls is the first book in a dark and compelling new police series.

Reviews:

"Mistry tackles a difficult subject with great craft in this dark novel. It is a gripping read which keeps the reader turning the pages until an explosive finale. With plenty of twists and turns, this is a must read for all crime fiction fans." David Evans, author of the critically acclaimed Wakefield Series.

"A brilliantly atmospheric and unsettling debut. Mistry writes with natural ease. This book is better than good, it's great and deserves to be up there with the best in the business." Betsy Reavley, author of best-selling thrillers Carrion, The Quiet Ones and The Optician's Wife.

Unquiet Souls is the first in an explosive new crime series. It will appeal greatly to fans of authors like Helen Durrant, Angela Marsons, K.A. Richardson and Robert Bryndza.
