THREE MISSING CHILDREN. Over the past three years, the quiet Yorkshire village of Stormer Hill has lost three of its children. No bodies were ever discovered. No evidence found. No witnesses.

THE WRITER. Struggling to find inspiration for his new novel, celebrated crime author, and ex-police officer, Alex Palmer, believes the story of the missing children could end his writer's block, but is he prepared for the story that's about to develop?

THE DETECTIVE. Tom Nolan, a seasoned detective and loner involved in finding each missing child. Nolan is tasked with chaperoning Palmer and walking through each case. But as both men revisit the past, and dig deeper, neither are prepared for the chilling discovery to why the children were taken.

THE BRETHREN. A secret cult. Two men, and a series of brutal and unimaginable murders spanning over seven years with one intention; to show the world that death can be justified if it's for a greater good.
This was my first novel by Wallwork and he definitely did not disappoint! Anyone who follows my reviews will notice that when it comes to thrillers, I prefer the plots to be non-stop action instead of slow-burners. In Bad People, the author immediately dives into action and I knew then that I would be a fan of this one.

Readers become quickly aware that there's a dangerous individual looming around the area known as Stormer Hill; this destination is quickly gaining attention as being a hotspot for child abductions, which lures our struggling writer, Alex Palmer, to the area. Palmer is struggling to find inspiration for a new novel and believes by putting himself into the spotlight for this case, it will allow him to begin flowing with creativity once more.

Tom Nolan, an experienced detective, is tasked with mentoring Palmer during his stay and is front and center when it comes to the missing children cases that are accumulating. However, this union brings up a lot of memories for both parties that they may have otherwise never reflected upon.

In the midst of uncovering the identity of the children's abductor, all parties involved will discover a shocking revelation that nobody could have foreseen. How will everyone cope with the aftermath of such a shocking revelation? You'll have to read to find out!
