The Dead Ground

Author:

Claire McGowan

Synopsis:

A stolen baby. A murdered woman. A decades-old atrocity. Something connects them all... A month before Christmas, and Ballyterrin on the Irish border lies under a thick pall of snow. When a newborn baby goes missing from hospital, it's all too close to home for forensic psychologist Paula Maguire, who's wrestling with the hardest decision of her life. Then a woman is found in a stone circle with her stomach cut open, and it's clear a brutal killer is on the loose. As another child is taken and a pregnant woman goes missing, Paula is caught up in the hunt for a killer no one can trace, and who will stop at nothing to get what they want.

When a puzzling missing persons' case opens up in her hometown, forensic psychologist Paula Maguire can't help but return once more. Renovations at an abandoned farm have uncovered two bodies: a man known to be an IRA member missing since the nineties, and a young girl whose identity remains a mystery. As Paula attempts to discover who the girl is and why no one is looking for her, an anonymous tip-off claims that her own long-lost mother is also buried on the farm. When another girl is kidnapped, Paula must find the person responsible before more lives are destroyed. But there are explosive secrets still to surface. And even Paula can't predict that the investigation will strike at the heart of all she holds dear.

Seven years ago in Cape Town, three young South African schoolboys were abducted in broad daylight on consecutive days. They were never seen again.

When the South African Police Service receives a panicked call for help from the wayward daughter of a former Apartheid-era politician, they soon discover not only her body, but within it, a message that will take Colonel Vaughn de Vries and Don February of the Special Crimes Unit on a journey through their country - and its past. As organised crime grips South Africa, new players arrive in Cape Town, determined to exploit the poor and hopeless. While other government agencies snap impotently at the small fish, de Vries, linked by a personal connection, resolves to follow this trail to its source and take it down from the top. Soon decades-old webs of corruption and influence are exposed; and as the boundaries of morality blur, de Vries's decisions begin to impact on his friends, colleagues and family.
