THE TREATMENT (Jack Caffery #2)

Midsummer, and in an unassuming house on a quiet residential street on the edge of Brockwell Park in south London, a husband and wife are discovered. Badly dehydrated, they've been bound and beaten, the husband is close to death. But worse is to come: their young son is missing.

When DI Jack Caffery of the Met's AMIT squad is called in to investigate, the similarities to events in his own past make it impossible for him to view this new crime with the necessary detachment. And as Jack digs deeper, as he attempts to hold his own life together in the face of ever more disturbing revelations about both the past and the present, the real nightmare begins...

When a scrap of paper containing a chilling plea is found in the woods, attached to a lost dog, Detective inspector Jack Caffery inherits both the dog and the investigation. He has no idea who he is searching for, but it's a race against time.

Ten miles away a family is being held hostage, fighting for their lives in their isolated hilltop house. This is no random crime. They endured a nightmare years before, and that same horror has returned...

Will Caffery make the connection, before it's too late?
