Two boys run into the woods-but only one returns-in this new mystery from the award-winning 'first-rate British crime writer' (The Washington Post).

In the summer of 1996, two boys run from a playground into the adjoining woods, but only one comes out. DS Tom Thorne takes on the case-which quickly spirals out of control when two people connected to the missing boy are murdered.

As London prepares to host the European Soccer Championships, Thorne fights to keep on top of a baffling investigation while also dealing with the ugly fallout of his broken marriage . . .

A prequel to Mark Billingham's acclaimed debut Sleepyhead-which the Sunday Times voted one of the 100 books that shaped the decade-this chilling, compelling novel is the latest in 'a series to savor' (Booklist).

The story is a bit thin, but was still fun to listen to.

The ending was the worst. Didn't explain throughout book why each character did what they did then threw it at you all at once with some assumptions needing to be made.

The story was amazing!!!! It was a mostly calm, but EXTREMELY engaging mystery with a few bouts of action in there. I found myself needing to pick my jaw up off the ground at times lol the Narrator was GREAT! Reading from a first-person perspective, the change in his tones wwre very relatable and realistic; soooooo much better than the acting in some current podcasts. The narrator's engaging presence was consistent throughout! OVER ALL GREAT PERFORMANCE AND AMAZING STORY!

This book has great narration but lack juicy characters! I didn’t fall in love with any of the characters. It lacks characters drama.
