The Stacks: The Treatment

by Mo Hayder

 

From Ama​zon​.com:

Hayder’s sec­ond nov­el after the hair-rais­ing Bird­man, The Treat­ment brings Detec­tive Jack Caf­fery back to inves­ti­gate the abduc­tion of a lit­tle boy, a crime with dis­turb­ing par­al­lels to Caffery’s own trou­bled past.

In a qui­et res­i­den­tial area in Lon­don, a cou­ple is dis­cov­ered bound and impris­oned in their own home. Sav­age­ly bat­tered and severe­ly dehy­drat­ed, the worst rev­e­la­tion is yet to come: their eight-year-old son has been abduct­ed. But when the body is found and foren­sic evi­dence turns the case on its head, reveal­ing dis­turb­ing par­al­lels to events in Detec­tive Caffery’s own past, he real­izes he’s deal­ing with much more sin­is­ter forces than he’d anticipated—and finds it increas­ing­ly dif­fi­cult to main­tain his pro­fes­sion­al dis­tance. As the evi­dence mounts and Caf­fery strug­gles to hold his own life togeth­er, the case hur­tles toward a shock­ing con­clu­sion.
