No Trace

No Trace

Within an unconventional artists' neighbourhood centred on Northcote Square in London, Detective Chief Inspector David Brock and Detective Sergeant Kathy Kolla engage in their most compelling case yet. They need to find missing six-year-old Tracey Rudd, the third child to be abducted in similar circumstances in recent weeks.

'Reading any other crime books, especially by someone as good as Maitland, would be too much of a distraction!' John Harvey

'For those who prefer their crime fiction silky smooth, it's hard to go past Barry Maitland's No Trace. A highly polished piece that displays its author's mastery of the police procedural and his ability to imagine society through it.' Sydney Morning Herald

'No one who reads this haunting, unnerving work will ever again think about contemporary artists the same way.' Publishers Weekly
