The Chosen Ones by Howard Linskey

A new name to me, Howard Linskey sets his novels in the north east and they feature Detective Ian Bradshaw. ‘The Chosen Ones’ starts with the thoughts of a kidnapped girl and the book slowly unveils how she got there and that she was not the first.

Set in the 1990’s, although parts of the book flashback to the early 70’s, Howard Linskey has a deft writing style and soon draws the reader into the book. It is a page turner with plenty of shocks along the way and Ian Bradshaw uses two journalists to help him on the case, which of course brings its own problems as the press and the police are not natural allies.

Very impressive and a book where you keep wanting to read just that little bit pore to see how the story progresses. Howard Linskey is now added to my ‘must read’ list of crime writers.
