Return to Me (The Missing, Book 2) Losing someone can destroy you, but finding them can be worse… I’m surprised at how naive he was and how little he knew. He should never have trusted me, but some lessons must be learned the hard way.  Detective George Ellis thought he had it all: the perfect wife, the loving children, and the dream job. He thought he was safe and that nothing could touch him. He thought wrong. Detective Ellis has spent a lifetime chasing killers, but nothing can prepare him for what’s ahead. When a woman turns up dead, George is the number one suspect – particularly when it turns out that he knew the victim. Now, he’s trapped in a world of his own terrible making, but with nothing left to lose, he’s about to find out what he’s really capable...

Chapter 1 I Should Have Told You, by Joanne Clancy #SampleSunday

Prologue October 25th, 1969 The infant’s hungry cries pierced the night air. Infuriated, his father threw the duvet aside and leapt out of bed. He hurried to the chest of drawers that doubled as the baby’s cot. Angrily, he slammed the drawer closed. Inside, the wails soon turned to gasps as the baby struggled for air… Chapter 1 The killer cruised the empty, moonlit streets lined with naked trees, Georgian terraces, and high-rise flats that towered into the black sky.

He’d know her as soon as he laid eyes on her. The killer was a lean man, average height. He wore a black wool coat and brown corduroy trousers. A hammer lay on the back seat. A young blonde woman got out of her car and hurried up the steps to her house. She glanced uncertainly over her shoulder before opening the front door and switching on the hall lights. She lingered on the threshold for a minute, sensing someone out there, watching and waiting. Shivering, she locked the door carefully behind her. The killer stared at the house. Lights came on upstairs. The woman came to the bedroom window and looked down the street, peering into the blackness. Then she drew the curtains tight and switched off the light. The killer continued driving. Then he saw her, staggering slightly. She stuck out a hand to flag him down. The street was deserted....
