Pushing aside her own troubles, Alex puts everything into finding the killer, but when someone else is found dead, she begins to suspect that the body in the hospital was just the first of many.
Just as Alex uncovers a heart-breaking link between the victims, she finds her own safety under threat. Is this a figure from her past hell-bent on revenge, or could the murderer be even nearer than she thinks?

Nobody’s Child by Victoria Jenkins another instalment in the Detectives King & Lane, Book No.3. I’ve read the first 2 books by Victoria and never thought the series could get any better but boy was I wrong, Nobody’s Child is even more a flawless thriller which will have you hanging off ever page, how do you do it Victoria…
Opening Nobody’s Child we are swamped with the horror and intense crime of the discovery of the body of a man burned to death in an old abandoned hospital, King has her work cut out for her trying to identify the man. Someone has to be missing him, someone must know who he is, identification is going to take time, time King may not have as another body is discovered, are there more to come, is there a serial killer on the loose.
The common denominator between each victim becomes imperative, finding the link, will it capture the killer, King and her team, trawl through many aspects, doubling back, coming full circle, the trail becomes a tangle of deception, lies and secrets.
Follow the path, turn here, turn there, look right, look left, the barricades building higher and higher, just when I think I’m at a loss and I don’t know which clue to follow a chink of light, a spark pulls me in a different direction and the chase begins again.
King has troubles of her own, is the past coming back, King tries to concentrate on the case but someone wants Alex, are they trying to harm Alex or worse still……
You know I’m actually still sitting here looking at the cover and I’m in awe at how captivating it is, its certainly true that a picture tells a thousand words, in Victoria’s case the cover tells the story of crime, suspense and also in a heinous way beauty, open the cover, turn the pages and find your words.
Okay there was no kiss and tell for Nobody’s Child its an absolute must to read yourself, go on grab yourself a copy, it could be reads as a standalone but why would you want to, grab the series and enjoy.
