Then later Liam Mahone says categorically that it was a woman that was there and Mrs Flowers later admits it ?? If all Mahones where present wouldn’t they be the only people who knew the actual truth ????And for the love of god we know Max has a BMW X5 but does the author have to spell it out each time Countless times it’s mentioned why not just say car ?? Maybe it’s a man thing ??

#taken By Tony Parso‘Tense and human’ LEE CHILD ‘Brilliant stuff’ PETER JAMES‘A cracking read’ PIERS MORGAN#taken in the nightThey thought they were kidnapping the mistress of one of London’s most powerful gangsters But they’ve taken the wrong woman And crossed the wrong detective #taken undergroundDetective Max Wolfe's hunt for I love Max Wolfe there now I've said it He's probably my favourite fictional cop wish he was realAnyway I've heard a whisper that this is his last outing say it isn't so? I'm going to really miss him and Scout and of course Stan And no forays into the Black Museum sighBack to the book sixth in series start with book one and read in order yadda yadda Honestly you'd do yourself a favour if you do as they are all excellent books both reading and listening to I also have all the Audible versions apart from this one which isn't out yet and they are brilliantly narratedSo in this book Jessica a young mother is kidnapped Taken from a car as she was returning home with her young son left strapped into his baby seat Max is called in to investigate and things take a bit of a dark turn when he discovers that Jessica's flat mate and owner of the car she was driving Snezia is romantically linked to crime boss and nemesis Harry Flowers Was it really Jessica who was the target or did they get the wrong girl? But then Jessica has her own connections to crime via her father an ex cop Max and his team still reeling from the events of the last book no spoilers have their work cut out for them as they try to cut through the noise and work out what is going on in time for them to save JessicaThere was so much going on in this book that my head was pretty much spinning as much as Max and his team's Wow this author never fails to deliver with twist after twist turn after turn and plenty of dead ends to boot There's also the obligatory trip to the Black Museum to garner a bit of background and a small amount of Max battling Anne for the good of their daughter Stan gets his fair share of the action too but thankfully not as much as the last bookPlotting is tight and there is pretty much no superfluous padding which means that the story gets on with itself at a fair lick So much so that I found it very hard to put down and became uite grumpy when life dictated to me that I had toAll in all if this really is the last book it's not a bad one to end on I'd love to read about Max and his wonderful families personal and professional but I respect the author for going out on a high Maybe he'll sneak me a few short stories in the future Hope so I'd hate to have to say a final goodbye to Max
