A baffling mystery sets an FBI agent on a dangerous path…

Park rangers are puzzled when a child is found wandering alone in the middle of a forest near Seattle.

Stranger still, he speaks a peculiar language that sounds a little like German, and is dressed in clothes people wore in the Middle Ages.

With no one having reported him missing, FBI Special Agent Will McCord assembles a dedicated unit to investigate the case, placing Detective Ilona Farris at its head.

Their relationship is edgy. They used to be an item. But McCord knows Farris is the best person for the job. Especially when more children turn up in similar circumstances.

Farris isn’t convinced that she is in fact the right person. Memories of a traumatic incident in her own childhood begin to emerge, and threaten to cloud her judgement.

Can she bury her demons and solve the mystery of these children, seemingly lost in time?

THE PIPER’S CHILDREN is an absorbing standalone thriller, packed with mind-blowing twists, and filled with incredible suspense, by Iain Henn. It is the first book in a captivating new series about a special FBI unit focused on seemingly unsolvable crimes. Look out for the others, THE WHISTLER’S OMEN and THE STORM KILLINGS. Iain Henn is also author of DEAD SET ON MURDER and THE GREATEST BETRAYAL.

THE PIPER’S CHILDREN is a book you’ll want to race to the end of, but won’t want to finish. Beguiling, mysterious, and chilling, it will stay with you for a long time.

"Mesmerising. I was completely swept along by this FBI/ folklore thriller from the outset. The Piper is a legendary threatening figure towards children and seems to somehow transcend time. When a group of children appear in medieval clothing speaking ancient Germanic dialect, they have the FBI baffled. A new team tasked with impossible cases headed by Will and his newly recruited ex-girlfriend IIona are set to follow the clues. The Piper is always a step ahead of them and leads them on a merry dance to his tune. The friction between Will and Ilona mounts but never transcends back into romance. This case takes them into surprising territories with some superb twisty thrills. IIona is a fierce female protagonist, and her own past holds trauma. It has been riveting discovering her personal character. This book just kept delivering until the end. I really hope there will be more adventures from this team in future books." #thepiperschildren #iainhenn #thriller #folklore #blogtour #thebookfolks #fbithriller #unsolvablecrimes #yourworstnightmare #thepiedpiper #summerthriller
