Wrong time. Wrong place.

Has the wrong girl been #taken?

The murder team in West End Central are reeling from the brutal death of a beloved colleague and they are all mourning in their own way. But when a young mother is kidnapped by unknown assailants, Max Wolfe and his colleagues suddenly have a dangerous job to do.

As Max Wolfe investigates the connection between the kidnapped woman and the head of a crumbling criminal empire, the hunt takes him from New Scotland Yard's Black Museum to the glittering mansions of career criminals, from sleazy strip joints to secret dungeons, and from the murderous hatreds of today to the unspeakable crimes of half a lifetime ago.

And as Max unravels the mystery of why someone would kidnap an innocent young woman, he is plunged into a dark world of family secrets, sexual jealousy and a lust for revenge that will come to threaten everything Max Wolfe loves.
AUTHOR: Tony Parsons left school at sixteen and his first job in journalism was at the New Musical Express. His first journalism after leaving the NME was when he was embedded with the Vice Squad at 27 Savile Row, West End Central. The roots of the DC Max Wolfe series started here. Since then he has become an award-winning journalist and bestselling novelist whose books have been translated into more than forty languages. The Murder Bag, the first novel in the DC Max Wolfe series, went to number one on first publication in the UK. All of the DC Max Wolfe novels have been Sunday Times top five bestsellers. Tony lives in London with his wife, his daughter and their dog, Stan.

    A real surprise!

    Posted by rjm on 22nd Jan 2021

    I have enjoyed a number of Tony Parsons' books over the years (About a boy, Man and boy, One for my baby, etc) so when I saw this on sale I bought it. When it arrived I was a bit surprised; firstly as it was a hardback, so a really good "deal", but also that it wasn't the normal Tony Parsons style that I was expecting. I even thought it was by a different author altogether, albeit with the same name. However it didn't take long for these doubts to disappear. I found it a thoroughly good read; well written, with a gripping storyline and believable characters. Although it is the latest in a series of books with the same character, DI Max Wolfe, my late arrival didn't affect my enjoyment. I will be buying some of the earlier books in the same series soon.
