Lee, southeast London. A young girl has disappeared.
There are no witnesses, no leads, no clues.
The police are tracking a shadow,
and time is running out …
DI Ellen Kelly is at the top of her game – at least she was,
until she took the law into her own hands and confronted her husband’s killer.
Now she’s back at work, leading the investigation into the missing child.
Her superiors are watching her; the distraught family is depending on her.
Ellen has a lot to prove. And she knows it.
A tense thriller that stalks the urban streets of southeast London and the
bleak wilderness of the North Kent coast, Hunting Shadows introduces
the forceful, compromised police detective, DI Ellen Kelly.

Voted Number One crime novel of 2013 by Crimesquad: ‘Bugler’s debut is akin to a big hit of narcotics, but in paper form. This
book will give you a buzz!’
