Two Cases. One location. The first case, a girl gone missing, seems a decidedly local affair. The second, the return of a violent criminal who had fled the country, instantly attracts the interest of Scotland Yard and Detective Inspector David Brock.
When he learns that his longtime nemesis, the amphetamine-juiced killer and thief known as “Upper” North, may have surfaced, Brock assembles his team and summons Detective Sergeant Kathy Kolla. Their manhunt centers on Silvermeadow, the supermall on the outskirts of London where North was spotted. Brock and Kolla camouflage their search for North by taking on the case of the missing girl—a mall employee. They lie in wait, hoping to catch North before he can strike with a new crime. Yet what should they make of rumors of other young girls disappearing from Silvermeadow? Is there a predator on the loose within the apparent safety of a carefully orchestrated aura of order and control? Very quickly, the mall itself—and its colorful cast of characters—becomes key to the dual investigations. This is Maitland at his cunning best.

The story is interesting but my nook copy was so messed up that it became unreadable. To begin with the typos were many and it was especially disconcerting to have to victim's name bounced back as Kerri and then Kern. On page 204 in Nook it became impossible to continue reading because the wording didn't make any sense. Then suddenly, they had a killer who had, by no warning, been caught! I bought this book because I had enjoyed the author's writing before and wanted to read more. Perhaps you could get your act together and fix my Nook copy so I can finish it.
This ebook was corrected and re-posted in Fall 2012 so those errors were fixed. Don't let an out-of-date review scare you away from a good and VERY BRITISH mystery series/1
I enjoy Maitland's books, but this Nook book averages four typos per page until it gets to page 204. Then everything comes apart. It's like the paragraphs have been put in a mixer and then poured out. Sections seem to be out of order and some may even be missing. I was following the story pretty well, but now I have no idea what's going on. If you want to read the story, buy the paperback. That's what I'm going to so so I can find out how it ends. This is the first Nook book I've had any serious problem with, but it has more than all of the 50 or more I've read all put together.
This book was very hard to read due to the many spelling errors. For instance, one of the characters name is Kerri, this is frequently displayed as Kern. This was bad enough, but about halfway through the book, it's as if someone dropped the pages and and put them back and any order. Sentences end midway through a statement. One place the chapter just ends halfway through a sentence. There are also places where you're reading paragraphs entirely out of context, then you flip back to the original subject. The story is decent, but the horrible editing make it hard to follow. This is the worst I've seen. Most disappointing. The low rating is for the distraction of the poor editing, not the story.
