Description

Everything changes for Lieutenant Julia Brennan, NYPD, on a January morning in Central Park. The commander of a Manhattan North homicide squad, she inspects the body of an unidentified young girl. Naked, her skin blue from the cold, her feet cut and scraped as if from desperate flight, the grim sight of the dead child in an instant turns Brennan's priorities upside down. Brennan is tough-minded, but suddenly she finds herself willing to risk her promotion and, if necessary, her entire career to give a woefully lost child a name and to apprehend the parties responsible for an appalling crime. Her search takes her into the world of paedophiles and foreign adoption agencies that sell children into slavery - a world where, Julia begins to realise, someone is way ahead of her, and is killing off the very suspects she is tracking down. Striking a devil's bargain with an undercover cop from the Sex Crimes unit, a man with a troubled past, Julia follows a tortuous path until, alone and dismayed, she sees that she has made a terrible mistake. Now she faces her greatest fear. For Lieutenant Julia Brennan is also a mother, and no one means more to her than her young daughter...show more

Review quote

"Little Girl Blue", so named because the ten year old naked body of the little girl had turned blue in the cold of a harsh New York Winter. How had she arrived in Central Park with no clothes? The abrasions on her feet indicate she was running before collapsing and dying under a bush. But no-one has seen her and there is no missing persons report either... Lieutenant Julia Brennan, NYPD and supposedly hardened against crimes of all sorts is shaken to the bone by this grim discovery and she vows to find out what happened despite top brass trying to take the case away from her. But even she is not prepared for what she uncovers in the course of her investigation, an underground ring of paeophiles and child molestors whose wicked web threatens to engulf her own life and family. Fast-paced and totally New York this is a page-turning chiller thriller for all fans of American crime. Politics and scandal mix with murder and sexual perversion to bring a tale of such horror and appal you cannot help but keep reading until the final climactic moment. Excellent. - Lucy Watsonshow more
