Publisher's Summary

Book two in the new crime series featuring forensic psychologist Paula McGuire working in the missing persons unit in Northern Ireland: A nail biting story that will keep you up all night. A stolen baby. A murdered woman. A decades-old atrocity. Something connects them all...
A month before Christmas, and Ballyterrin on the Irish border lies under a thick pall of snow. When a newborn baby goes missing from hospital, it's all too close to home for forensic psychologist Paula Maguire, who's wrestling with the hardest decision of her life. Then a woman is found in a stone circle with her stomach cut open and it's clear a brutal killer is on the loose. As another child is taken and a pregnant woman goes missing, Paula is caught up in the hunt for a killer no one can trace, who will stop at nothing to get what they want.
The Dead Ground will leave you gasping for breath as Paula discovers every decision she makes really is a matter of life and death...
