This is the Prequel to The Child Taker - you can read this first, after, or in between the series as I did, in whichever order, don't miss out.
I don't know what possessed Jones to write a prequel, but I am pleased he did.
The child taker in one sick character, and I am half way through the series...but, when I saw this was out I needed to backtrack to read it, before reading on.
Wow, it is like falling down a grim hole and you have to fight your way through the mire, grit and gruesome minds of the characters, to come out the other side and breathe fresh air again.
A squirmy read that is as unsettling as it is brilliant.
I highly recommend to read this new addition to the series.
An array of perfectly written baddies, that you need to know what the out come for them is.
Jones is a gritty writer with a talent for showing some humanity in a few of his characters that are the sludge of mankind.
Leaving you needing to know what happens next, even though the grimness leaves you little desire to read on.
Whether you have previously read this series or new to it, this is a book you must read.
