"One of the best crime books I have ever read!!!" —5-star Reader Review 
All around Albuquerque, New Mexico, young women are going missing—they seemingly vanish into thin air. With no link between the victims, Detective Alyssa Wyatt is quickly plunged into a horrifying case with no obvious clues. And when Jersey Andrews, the best friend of Alyssa’s teenage daughter, Holly, joins the list of vanished girls, the case becomes personal.

But this investigation will lead Alyssa and her partner Cord into the most sinister depths of humanity—an evil place where life is expendable and where the depraved can fulfil their darkest desires…if they have the money to pay for it. As the first bodies appear, abandoned on the streets, Alyssa is forced into a frantic hunt to track down the killers. But when the truth comes out, it seems that the key to solving the case was hiding in the last place anyone expected.

The Toybox is a dark, tension-filled and absolutely nail-biting crime thriller with a twist in the tale.
