Mystery Book Review

The Blood-Dimmed Tide
By Rennie Airth

Rural England, 1932
Alice and Sally, both 12, set out shortly before noon to attend a birthday party in a nearby village. Sally, realizing that that she had forgotten the birthday gift, left Alice waiting for her at the halfway point along a path through Capel Wood. But when Sally got back to where she had left her friend, the path was empty. Sally, thinking her friend had gone ahead, continued on to the friend’s house, but Alice had not arrived. Searchers were soon called in and Inspector John Madden, retired from Scotland Yard and living nearby is asked to help with the investigation of the disappearance of the young girl.
