Summary
Five years ago, Detective Constable Ash Henderson's daughter Rebecca went missing on the eve of her thirteenth birthday. A year later a homemade card arrived with a Polaroid picture stuck to the front: Rebecca, strapped to a chair, gagged and terrified. Every year another card comes, each worse than the last. The Birthday Boy has been snatching soon-to-be thirteen-year-old girls for twelve years and sending the families cards showing their daughters being slowly tortured to death. But Ash hasn't told anyone about Rebecca, letting everyone think she's run away from home so he can remain on the investigation. And he's sacrificed too much to give up before his daughter's killer gets what he deserves.
