Luther, The Calling by Neil Cross
London needs Luther's skills badly in the newest case. A man is targeting perfect families. He wants a child of his own and is convinced a child from a perfect family is the best bet. There are a series of home invasions where he takes the child and leaves the entire family behind dead. His latest target is an eleven year old child, Mia. He has her but as the net tightens around him, he threatens to kill her rather than lose his freedom. Can Luther and the rest of the squad find her before time runs out?
Fans of the BBC America TV series, Luther, will be thrilled to see that Neil Cross has brought his creation to the printed page.

They are also taken into Luther's life and learn what it is to be the best in a job that is slowly ruining everything you love. The pace is heart stopping and the reader can't help but cheer on this tormented man who is the best at what he does. This book is recommended for mystery lovers.
