The Magpie

When a little girl goes missing in build-up to Christmas 1939, there’s no shortage of people willing to help look for her, and while her parents wait for news, hope fades with every passing hour.

From the reactions of those around him, Detective Inspector Stone is unsure whether he’s dealing with a missing child, a kidnapping… or murder.

In a case that will ultimately test Stone to his limits, he relies on the distractions of his life away from the force to keep him sane.

The Magpie is the third in K. J. Frost’s detective series.
