Birthdays For The Dead

by Stuart MacBride

Harpercollins (uk) | January 23, 2012 | Hardcover

Birthdays For The Dead is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.

The gritty new standalone crime novel from the No. 1 bestselling author of Shatter the Bones and Dark Blood Detective Constable Ash Henderson has a dark secret! Five years ago his daughter, Rebecca, went missing on the eve of her thirteenth birthday. A year later the first card arrived: homemade, with a Polaroid picture stuck to the front -- Rebecca, strapped to a chair, gagged and terrified. Every year another card: each one worse than the last. The tabloids call him The Birthday Boy. He''s been snatching girls for twelve years, always in the run-up to their thirteenth birthday, sending the families his homemade cards showing their daughters being slowly tortured to death. But Ash hasn''t told anyone about Rebecca''s birthday cards -- they all think she''s just run away from home -- because if anyone finds out, he''ll be taken off the investigation. And he''s sacrificed too much to give up before his daughter''s killer gets what he deserves!

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantatic read A great read for everyone. This novel has great characters. I couldn't put it down. It's about a detective who's daughter is among one of a serial killer abduction who he kills and then send pictures each year on her birthday to the parents of what he did to them. He keeps it a secret by saying she ran away so he don't get taken off the case. Not much more too say but it's awesome.
