Publisher's Summary

At the height of summer a dark shadow falls across Exmoor. Children are being stolen from cars. 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. But - still reeling from a personal tragedy - is Jonas really up to the task? Because there's at least one person on Exmoor who thinks that, when it comes to being the first line of defence, Jonas Holly may be the last man to trust.

Chilling and athmospheric

Would you listen to Finders Keepers again? Why?

Yes. Belinda Bauer's thriller is not a who-done-it, the perpetrator is made clear early in the novel, but an unsettling psychological study of captor and captive. The motivations and reactions of each character is excellently captured and I would be happy to read about their development again.


What did you like best about this story?

After some minutes of listening to this book I felt I had some idea of what path it was taking but I was constantly surprised by Bauer's writing. The novel combines great tension and excellent character studies.


What about John Sackville’s performance did you like?

The characters he embodies range from young children to elderly men and in each case he captures the personality perfectly and uniquely in his reading. A masterly performance.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I didn't listen to this book in one sitting because at times the tension created was so intense I needed to break of. But I was always eager to get back to it!


Any additional comments?

This is a stand alone book though some of the characters in it feature in Bauer's earlier novels Blacklands and Darkside. I would recommend all three. She is a writer who avoids the obvious path and always creates a totally engaging and unsettling world for the reader or listener.
