The book

The winner of the Crime Writers’ Association Gold Dagger Award, acclaimed author Robert Wilson’s new international thriller follows a family thrown into conflict by careers spent solving disappearances. For two detectives and their thrill-seeking teenage daughter, the distinction between parental love and crime investigation is dangerously blurred. Amy Boxer has vanished from London, taunting her parents with the last line of her note: “you will never find me.” Because they don’t want to get the news that every parent dreads, Charles Boxer and Mercy Danquah accept her challenge. Boxer pursues a lead that takes him to one of the most violent cities in Europe, the Spanish capital. Restless in London, Mercy throws herself into rescuing a young Russian boy, Sasha Bobkov, who’s been kidnapped. In Madrid’s strobe-lit bars and crowded dance clubs, Amy thinks she is anonymous and untouchable. Boxer must use years of crime-fighting experience and his parental instinct to trace her quickly vanishing steps below the gritty Spanish skyline. Meanwhile, Mercy’s search for Sasha in London takes her deep into a mystery that eliminates the protective line between family and work. As their cases begin to mirror each other, both parents race down unforeseen paths, in a pursuit against time to rescue Amy and Sasha. You Will Never Find Me is a captivating novel of revenge and brutal reprisals, heart-rending love, and the ultimate selfless act. Robert Wilson has written the thriller that won’t let you catch your breath.
