In this chilling masterwork, Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks holds little hope for a seven-year-old kidnapping victim, particularly when no ransom demand is made. When the body of a young man is discovered in an abandoned mine, the kidnapping case takes an even more sinister twist.
Wednesday's child is full of woe...
It was a crime of staggering inhumanity: a seven-year-old girl taken from her home right in front of her desperate working-class mother. With each passing moment, Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks realizes that the child's death becomes more and more likely. But there are worse fates than death in a nightmare world of human monsters and their twisted games. And the grisly discovery of a young man slain in a particularly savage fashion only starts the clock ticking faster, drawing Banks into the sordid depths of an evil more terrible and terrifying than anything he has ever encountered.
