    This is an enjoyable book. It?s a good mix of procedural and thriller that definitely kept my attention! Now, you will know who is responsible for all this pretty early on ? it?s very well telegraphed ? but that shouldn?t hamper your enjoyment of the book. I found mysel...

    An engrossing police procedural following DCI Anna Tate as she tries to find nine small children who are kidnapped from their nursery. It's a case close to Anna's heart as it's revealed that her own daughter was taken from her as a toddler. I loved Anna's character, strong and determin...

    In Safe Hands is an unusual one- I wasn?t remotely interested in whodunnit or why from beginning to end, nor could I visualise any single character. Combined with DCI Anna Tate?s apparent lack of ability to organise an investigation, relying on lucky breaks entirely, I am left wond...

    Well this was a really good thriller and although I had a few suspicions about what was going it didn't in any way spoil my total enjoyment of the book as not all of them were right and as the story progressed it really racked up a notch leading to a really good ending. This is the fir...

    In Safe Hands by JP Carter is the first book in what I hope will be a series following DCI Anna Tate. I loved this book and read it very quickly. I do read a lot of books like this one but the story in this one was different and not predictable at all. I also liked Anna's story - extre...

    I thought this book was excellent. I was hooked throughout it and I was desperate to know what happened to the nine children. The book was split into two by the detective and one of the kidnapped children?s mum. There was some other plots going on which were also interesting. It was ...

    In Safe Hands is a gripping, well written and suspenseful read, and although I had correctly guessed the direction the book was heading very early on it still interested me enough to carry on. One of the main issues that make the story as predictable as it is, is the limited cast of su...
