Publisher's Summary

Wednesday's child is full of woe.... It was a crime of staggering inhumanity: a seven-year-old girl taken from her home right in front of her desperate working-class mother. With each passing moment, Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks realizes that the child's death becomes more and more likely. But there are worse fates than death in a nightmare world of human monsters and their twisted games. And the grisly discovery of a young man slain in a particularly savage fashion only starts the clock ticking faster, drawing Banks into the sordid depths of an evil more terrible and terrifying than anything he has ever encountered.

Great read

Really enjoyed the book and glad I listened to it before the TV series started. Find I can listen again and again and hear things I didn't the first time. Engaging story line makes you want to know who did it and how.
