Overview

How far would you go?

A little girl waits alone to be picked up after ballet class—until an unmarked car approaches, and she is gone.

But this little girl is the daughter of Police Captain Riedwaan Faizal. He is desperate to rescue her, but, suspended from the squad, he finds himself powerless.

With nobody on his side, the captain turns to investigative journalist and criminal profiler Dr. Clare Hart, whose documentary about Cape Town's missing young girls has made her a local celebrity. Clare knows that the odds of a child's survival dwindle with each passing minute. She knows that hiding her investigation from the police has its own dangers. But she will do anything to help a heartbroken father … even if it puts all their lives at risk.

Daddy's Girl is a dark and compelling crime story that will thrill fans of Deon Meyer and Tess Gerritsen.

322 pages. I hated this book. The style of writing drove me crazy. I did not want to read about crows eating a dead dog, or colors or.........i started scanning, then skipping, then quit. I could not stand it anymore. This is the first book on my top ten worst book list of 2015. I was incredibly bored. AD
