1985: a man runs for his life - exhausted, wounded, hunted remorselessly by a woman assassin known only as The Head Hunter. At the end, he has just enough energy to spit in her face. 2001: sixteen-year-old Kerry Lumsdon runs across the same terrain. She runs to win and she runs to forget. When a headless body is found in the wastelands of the Seahills Estate, Detective Inspector Lorraine Hunt is called in to investigate. Kerry and Lorraine, different ages and from different worlds, come together when Claire Lumsdon, Kerry's sister, is violently kidnapped - the fourth in a series of abductions of young girls. Headstrong, wilful and convinced the police can't help, Kerry sets out on a frantic search of her own. But her hunt takes her to a world she never knew existed: a violent underworld; a sixteen year old murder; and, finally, to secrets about her own past which her mother hoped she'd never have to face. And all the time, the clock is ticking for Claire...

Arend on
 
Much more of a social drama than a crime thriller, which would be considerably shorter in length were it not for the exorbitant use of profanity, which detracts markedly from an ability to remain intrigued with the story. The story line itself is further complicated with the use of a large number of characters, adding to an already confusing array of emotions which appear to be inserted more to fit the theme than reflective of the characters themselves. There are also moments when the level of reading appears to be more aimed at teenage readers rather than adults' There is also an implication that because of shoddy police work, crimes are best solved by teenagers with a mission.
