Since writing his first book, Murder on Yorkshire Moor, Ric Brady has continued apace and we are now delighted to present the third book in his Yorkshire based private detective series: Missing on Ilkley Moor.
Despite any impression’s Brady’s name might evoke when it comes to crime on the moors, there is nothing particularly gruesome about these books. Even the second, Butcher on the Moor, is fairly benign. Rather they can be classed as cosy mysteries, and are as much about exploring the characters involved than dwelling on the unpleasant side of crime.
MISSING ON ILKLEY MOOR
When a girl disappears, retired cop Henry Ward makes it his mission to find her…
It’s a cold winter day when ex-DCI Henry Ward and his terrier Tessa come across a girl’s hat on Ilkley Moor. Not an uncommon find, but this one is covered in blood, and Henry immediately senses a child is in danger.
Meanwhile, local social media is buzzing about an eight-year-old girl gone missing from her well-to-do home that very morning. But it is only the babysitter who is convinced she has been taken.
The family themselves don’t seem concerned about her apparent absence. And the police are not willing to spare resources searching for a child who’s not been reported missing.
Shocked by her cool reaction to his find, Henry suspects the mother, Sofia, has something to hide, and decides to investigate.
The weather is turning, and the girl might still be up on the moor. Weighed down by an ominous feeling something is very wrong, Henry must get to the bottom of the mystery, and find the child before it’s too late.
MISSING ON ILKLEY MOOR is the third standalone mystery in this captivating series by Ric Brady. Look out for the first, MURDER ON A YORKSHIRE MOOR, and the second, BUTCHER ON THE MOOR.
