Detective Ian Bradshore faces a race against time when women begin mysteriously disappearing.
Crime thriller The Chosen Ones (Penguin, £7.99) is the fourth book in a series by Welwyn GC author Howard Linskey. His inspiration for the novel came from watching a documentary on a war bunker found hidden beneath a farmhouse by its new owners.
‘I began to wonder what would have happened if someone with evil intentions had bought it,’ he said. In the novel, a woman wakes in a metal box with no idea where she is. ‘I suppose that is everyone’s idea of a nightmare and it was the starting point for the novel,’ the author adds.
