A missing child Nine-year-old Casey Collins is missing and time is running out. The chances of finding her alive get slimmer with each agonising hour. As hopes for her safe return fade, attention turns to Casey's mother, Trisha. Living in social housing, with five children by different fathers, it's not long before the desperate police and scandal-hungry press turn on her, questioning not just her lifestyle choices, but her innocence. Soon the previously tight-knit community on the run-down council estate in south London suspect little Casey's mother knows more about her daughter's disappearance than she is letting on. Only one woman can help Hard-nosed newspaper reporter, Angela Tate is the only person who believes Trisha Collins is incapable of harming Casey. But the ruthless hack has her own reasons for involving herself in the lives of Trisha's family. Always on the hunt for an exclusive, Tate promises front-page headlines and unlimited coverage of the case in return for information: she presses Trisha to give up a secret she's been keeping for over 30 years. An unsolved mystery Thirty-three years ago two little blonde girls disappeared from the same south London neighbourhood. One was discovered on waste ground by Angela Tate, who was led to her body by a 7-year-old Trisha, but the other girl was never found. Although a local youth was tried and convicted of the first murder, Tate was never convinced of his guilt and is determined to solve the mystery once and for all. Racing against time and opposed by the Metropolitan Police and a mysterious enemy, Angela Tate puts her own life on the line to uncover a truth more shocking than she could ever have imagined. Fans of The Loyal Servant will welcome the return of Angela Tate, but will this story be the last she ever investigates? The Third Estate is part page-turning suspense thriller, part gritty police procedural for fans of authors like Nicci French and Mark Billingham. A story of guilt, revenge and repentance, it is a murder mystery that will keep you guessing until the very last page.
