"The deepest secrets are the ones we keep from ourselves in this richly atmospheric, compellingly written, and expertly constructed crime debut from an emerging talent. Derbyshire, 1978: a small town in the idyllic English countryside is traumatized by the kidnapping of two young schoolgirls, Rachel Jones and Sophie Jenkins. Within hours, Rachel is found wandering alone near the roadside, unharmed yet unable to remember anything, except that her abductor was a woman.

In Bitter Chill begins when the body of an elderly woman, Yvonne Jenkins, is found in a Derbyshire hotel room. DC Connie Childs informs her boss, DI Francis Sadler that it appears to be a suicide. As they investigate further they begin to wonder if the death is somehow connected to a decades old cold case. Thirty years ago, on the same date, two eight-year-old girls, Rachel Jones and Sophie Jenkins, were abducted on the way to school. Rachel was found unharmed at the edge of the forest, but unable to remember anything except that her abductor was a woman. Sophie, Yvonne’s daughter, was never again.

Rachel Jones is now a genealogist, determined to live her life away from the shadow of the 1978 tragedy. Her grandmother Nancy, is the only remaining family link for Rachel to her troubled childhood. The story gets more complicated when the body of teacher, Penny Lander, with clear signs of having been strangled, appears on the same spot where Rachel Jones turned up after her abduction.

I enjoyed this book and thought the story line was quite interesting. The author managed to conceal as much as possible until the very end. Nothing is clear and no one is quite what he or she seems to be. DI Francis Sadler and young, eager DS Connie Childs were interesting characters and well drawn. The way in which the novel switches between the viewpoints of the investigators and of Rachel kept the story moving quickly. I really enjoyed it and look forward to another book by this debut author.

Two girls disappear in a small English countryside town in 1978. One of them walks out of the woods alive, while the other is never found. Over thirty years later, the mother of the still missing girl commits suicide. Days later, another body is found. For present day detectives and Rachel, the girl who survived the day she still has no memory of, the present day murders are bringing to light questions that have never been answered and the 1978 case is looked at with fresh eyes. At some points in this novel I was a tad confused because a few of the characters weren't as well developed as I would have liked, and I think it made them slightly less memorable than they could of been. But, overall, this was a quick read with a great setting I enjoyed sinking into. I really wanted to keep reading to know how all the murders were connected and what happened in 1978, and I was not disappointed. I will definitely be keeping an eye on this author.

A thoroughly intriguing read with twists and turns aplenty. Stories about missing children are always fascinating and this one has a completely unique back story. Rachel who survived the kidnapping has developed a career in genealogy but why does she focus only on the female side of her family? and what secrets is her feisty grandmother hiding? This kept me reading well into the night and the next in the series is a must buy for me. Excellent. ( )

The deepest secrets are the ones we keep from ourselves in this richly atmospheric, compellingly written, and expertly constructed crime debut from an emerging talent. Derbyshire, 1978: a small town in the idyllic English countryside is traumatized by the kidnapping of two young schoolgirls, Rachel Jones and Sophie Jenkins. Within hours, Rachel is found wandering alone near the roadside, unharmed yet unable to remember anything, except that her abductor was a woman. No trace of Sophie is ever discovered.

Present day: over thirty years later, Sophie's mother commits suicide. Detective inspector Francis Sadler and detective constable Connie Childs are assigned to look at the kidnapping again to see if modern police methods can discover something that the original team missed. Rachel, with the help of her formidable mother and grandmother, recovered from the kidnapping and has become a family genealogist. She wants nothing more than to continue living quietly beneath the radar, but the discovery of the strangled body of one of her former teachers days after the suicide brings the national media back to her doorstep. Desperate to stop a modern killer from striking again, Rachel and the police must unpick the clues to uncover what really happened all those years ago as the past threatens to engulf the present.

My Thoughts:

Beautifully written and without any scenes of over the top violence...so it should appeal to those that like a softer, more relaxed mystery... yet also have the qualities that we lovers of hard crime books look for in our reads. It is written in a style reminiscent of some of the classic crime writers with the focus on inhabitants of a small town, in this case one in Derbyshire.

What I actually found interesting were the little mundane facts interwoven with the plot making the characters a little more real. We have Sergeant Sandler who’s sleeping with a married woman, one detective working hard to make a name for herself, the other detective becoming more and more miserable as the date of his impending nuptials comes closer, Rachel who lives a mundane life with a great career as a genealogist, helping others follow their own ancestral descent, yet never delves into her own past with respect to her kidnapping. An interesting combination that produces a more than average first novel for this author. I look forward to more from DC Childs, DI Sadler, from this talented author.
