Mac is back in this thrilling novella following Vendetta, available exclusively as a digital ebook. You'll find the same characters in Death Trap, the compulsive novel from Dreda Say Mitchell.

In a respectable Victorian terraced house, a young child is discovered behind a panelled wall in a bathroom. He has been hidden there by dangerous criminals.

For DI John 'Mac' MacDonagh, the case opens up a raw wound from his past. The child's mother is the woman who seduced him and then double-crossed him. There's more: DNA tests reveal that the child's father is none other than Mac himself.

This is Mac's chance to rescue his son and have the family he's so longed for. But will his desire for revenge blind him to the terrible danger surrounding them both?

Praise for Snatched

  • Breathless from the first word and thrilling to the last

  • Wonderful vivid writing and a truly original voice.

  • Dreda Say Mitchell is right up there at the forefront of British crime fiction

  • A terrific murder mystery full of twists and turns... here is a writer who knows how to keep you gripped. Wow.

  • 'Right from the first page I loved this book.. This book is certainly going to be in my top 10 read of 2014. Just brilliant'

  • Spanning less than twenty-four hours, this is one of those spellbinding thrillers that literally sucks you in immediately... By the end of the book I was physically exhausted. Vendetta is a fantastic thriller. I suggest you strap in as you are in for a very bumpy and exhilarating ride!

  • Vendetta has one of the best openings I have read in some time... From there on in the action and the questions come thick and fast... It's a cracking read.

  • 'Dreda is the female Simon Kernick in my eyes... The book starts as it means to go on. A thriller cannot start slow, and this was action-packed from the word go... Dreda has played a blinder here with twists I just didn't see coming... Highly recommended'
