A well-dressed couple claim to be social workers responding to abuse allegations and pressure Brenda Scupham into allowing them to take her seven-year-old daughter, Gemma, into protective care. When they fail to return, Brenda realizes her catastrophic mistake, and soon Chief Inspector Alan Banks is on the case. As days pass, Banks and his colleague Detective Superintendent Gristhorpe begin to lose hope, but then a body is found in the ruins of a nearby lead mine, and the two cases begin to connect in a chilling, horrifying way. Sixth in the critically acclaimed Inspector Banks Mystery Series.

1. Not really unless you count Tory as my name is Victoria and my brother in law sometimes calls me that and we are teaching my nephew that as he is only 19 months and my full name is quite long.

2. Who's on the Loo? It's a children's book!

3. Yes as sometimes I have read books because of the hype but it's not worked out.

4. Not really important, I tend to go by if I like the author.

🌸 My sisters call me “Dang” ... there‘s a story

🌸 Pass? The most unique one on my shelves is “The Country of Ice Cream Star”.

🌸 Yes! I love the backlist because the hype has died down and I can come to my own, less-influenced decision.

🌸 Semi-important? Covers in my favourite colours are a good bet (orange and yellow)


tournevis 👋👋👋 1mo
wanderinglynn Will you share the story? With a nickname like Dang, it‘s gotta be a good story. 😉 1mo

Eggs Yes we want to know the “Dang” story!! 1mo
Pamwurtzler Thanks for the tag, @CouronneDhiver ! And yes, we definitely need the ‘Dang‘ story! 1mo
BiblioLitten Yup! All ears for the Dang story. 1mo
CouronneDhiver Now I‘m all awkward and blushy.🤓 In a nutshell, my baby sister couldn‘t say my name. She started with “Dangow” which got shortened to “Dang” and it just stuck. The whole family uses it now. She did it to herself too though: “Ayanda” (Amanda) got stuck as “Yand” @wanderinglynn @Eggs @Pamwurtzler @BiblioLitten 1mo
Eggs That is adorable 🥰 1mo
wanderinglynn What a fun story! Thanks for sharing! 💜 1mo
BiblioLitten So cute! 😊 Dangow sounds good too. 1mo

1. My hubby calls me 'Da Bom Pye' my maiden name was Pye and it's always stuck 🥧
2. Learning to play with lion's testicles 🦁
3. Yes, so I try to avoid reviews until I've read a book.
4. I do love a pretty book cover but doesn't bother me that much. I'm more about the content.
5. Not a tagger really 🤣

💚 Yes!!! several times so I try not to focus on hype

1. I am a teacher & recently one of my third graders recommended an author to me (Kasie West) & I am now obsessed with all of her books
2. Yes?
3. “He‘s Just Not That Into You”, yes & no, it was a fun read, but I am not sure it was helpful.
4. I have been working on a book for about 5 years, but I have read hundreds of others in that time.
5. Hey Littens! Happy Wednesday!! If you are reading this, I tag you!


Eggs Wow-didn‘t know Kasie W had written so many books! 2mo
AsYouWish @Eggs I didn‘t either until I looked her up. I just thought it was the 4 in the school library, then I went to her website and saw how many there actually were. Now I am debating if I want to buy them all or wait for them to become available on my library app. 2mo

1. If I feel a part of the story, like I am there with the characters & observing them from the sidelines. I also love books that make me want to be the main character.
2. Treasure Trolls (not sure they make them anymore) and Funko POP figures, I started about a year ago & my collection is slowly growing.
3. I have a cookbook/baking book of desserts that I love, but I don‘t remember the name.
4. Not really

Totally using your picture to save time, @MinDea!


1. Friends
2. I'm editing a doctoral thesis while on "holiday" at my MIL's in Windhoek.
3. Historical fiction
4. Usually I'm up with the kids, making coffee for me and rooibos tea for them and then I read to them. Sometimes still asleep at 6.
5. New sandals! I own hardly any shoes and my nice sandals that I wear everywhere are nearly 3 years old and look terrible.

Doughtah I really enjoyed this ya-historical fiction set post-wwi and russia‘s 1917 revolution: 7mo

2. Lords and Ladles - these 3 chefs take turns recreating banquets from the past (think 1600s) at beautiful country manors in Ireland
3. Dark grey
4. Sushi.
5. Erm all of them? Maybe at this point of time that new Minalima edition of The Little Mermaid.

MinDea I saw that at Half Priced books. It is so pretty! I love that they are doing that with the classics! 14mo
emtobiasz Aaaaah I want to watch Lords and Ladles! It sounds great! 14mo
RealLifeReading @MinDea they‘re so beautiful! I have the first two so I guess I‘m collecting them! 14mo
