With Child

Laurie R. King: With Child (UK 1998)

From the Publisher:
A terrifying and moving study of innocence in peril from award winning crime writer Laurie King...
In With Child, the third in King's extraordinary series, San Francisco homicide detective Kate Martinelli becomes involved in a nightmare that begins in her off-duty life and turns into a crime for which she feels herself responsible...

As the story begins, Kate is alone in the house she shares with her partner, Lee, who, slowly recovering from the gunshot wound that crippled her in A Grave Talent, decides that she must spend time on her own - a move that Kate can only interpret as rejection. Lonely, angry and confused, Kate befriends the bright, quirky twelve-year-old Jules, and when the girl's parents go on a trip, Kate agrees to care for her.

But when Kate decides to drive with Jules to northern Washington, to 'drop in' to the farm where Lee is staying, events spiral out of control. During the trip, in a rural area where a serial killer has been victimising young girls, Jules disappears...

In its emotional impact on the novel's complex characters, Laurie King's story has the intensity and depth of a superb literary work, spiced with the harrowing suspense of a desperate effort to rescue a young girl in mortal danger.
