The people of Shipcott have been through a lot in the first three of Belinda Bauer's books and I presume this particular series will not be continued further.

Only 3 left in stock (more on the way). The people of Shipcott have been through a lot in the first three of Belinda Bauer's books and I presume this particular series will not be continued further. Finders Keepers" seems to offer some closure for the reader with regard to the bleak village and inhabitants of Shipcott and a satisfying conclusion. The first book in the series, ("Blacklands"), was by far the best and that book hooked me and kept me coming back for the subsequent offerings, ("Darklands"), and now this book.

Belinda Bauer's third thriller set in the unfortunate village of Shipcott finds its residents terrorised by a spate of child abductions, writes Alison Flood. Finders Keepers has an enjoyably creepy premise, made compelling by Bauer's pitch-perfect renditions of the thoughts of a teenager falling in love and of a jealous younger brother, and by her skill at depicting the clash between old and new, locals and incomers, money and lack of it. This clash lies at the heart of the novel, providing a motivation for the kidnapper's actions. Bauer's villain, incidentally, is one of the oddest in detective fiction: what he does with his victims is utterly weird. But it's the book's humour that really shines.

Finders Keepers book. At the height of summer a dark shadow falls across Exmoor.

Davey’s instincts told him that if he didn’t get out of the house while his mother was all doped up and watching bad TV, she might never let him leave again. Every now and then Lettie focused on him. with clear eyes, and then reached out and held him in arms that were so tight and desperate it made him itch to throw her off and skip away across the room to freedom. But – in the first consciously selfless act of his young life – Davey stayed put and allowed her to crush him to her breast as if she might re-absorb him straight through her skin. It wasn’t that he wasn’t afraid.

Children are being stolen from cars and each disappearance is marked only by a terse note - a brutal accusation. There are no explanations, no ransom demands and no hope. Policeman Jonas Holly faces a precarious journey into the warped mind of the kidnapper if he's to stand any chance of catching him.

The story begins when a young girl, Jessica, is abducted from her dad's car, and a not is left in the car that says "You don;t love her." Because of this a police team come into Exmoor to solve the crime. It is the same team that was there in Darkside. At the beginning of this book, Jonas Holly has still on leave since the death of his wife, but is returned to duty as the story unfolds. No one is sure that he is ready for duty. Then more children go missing.
Steven from the novel Blacklands also plays a major part in this book. SInce I have read the other 2 books I really enjoyed this one. I'm not sure I would have understood everything if I had not read the other two first

I am hooked on these books now, but am relieved that this series has come to a natural end before they become too unbelievable. Well written and with many twists,I could hardly put this book down. The author writes with a lot of feeling and explores the depths of her characters really well. She must be a people watcher! I am amazed at how she always manages to make us understand people's actions by her exploration of their feelings and can forgive the plot and the murderer's motives for being so far fetched just because of the quality of writing. A really good read. .

The first book in the series, ("Blacklands"), was by far the best and that book hooked me and kept me coming back for the subsequent offerings, ("Darklands"), and now this book.

The premise of this third book is slightly ridiculous if the reader were to analyze things too closely, but this wonderfully written and smartly paced story holds the reader's interest enough to suspend almost any critique and it's a story where you can just enjoy the ride.

One thing I found slightly disconcerting was the big change in personalities of some of the characters between books. Of course, Stephen Lamb is growing up fast and can be excused, as can Jonas Holly - (as he's Jonas Holly!), but the characters of Reynolds and Liz Rice were almost unrecognizable from the previous book. It was like I was reading two totally different characters. I may be wrong as it is a fair while since I read "Darkside", but this observance did stand out often while I was reading this book.

If you have read the first two books I would definitely recommend this apparent conclusion to the series. If you haven't read the first two books, I would definitely recommend you read all three - but make sure you read them in order. Belinda Bauer is definitely a writer whose work I will buy in the future.

I've read all of her books. Some were good, others needed better editing. This one was excellent and impossible to out down.

If you like her work, you wil find yet an enjoyable bedside companion. The plot development is such that I don't want to give anything away. l like this story enormously, but, don't make it your first, And note, the sequence in the books is not the same as the sequence in availability in English translation. Now she's successful, they're putting out her older stuff. Her next book, "Rubberneckers" has no connection with her prior books. It is utterly awesome and I believe truly unique in many respects regarding the medical issues interwoven with the plot, again and again.

I am a big Belinda Bauer fan and cannot understand why more people don't know her. Excellent writer of dark, chilling novels which grab you from page 1. I cannot wait to read her latest book which I have on my nightstand. Highly recommended.

Good read, a bit wordy at times, all in all keeps one interested.
Another great Belinda Bauer book
