Synopsis

'A crime novel of the very first order.' - David Baldacci
'Trust me - Cummins is a keeper.' – Lee Child

If you like Mo Hayder and Thomas Harris, you’ll love The Collector

Jakey escaped with his life and moved to a new town.
His rescue was a miracle but his parents know that the Collector is still out there, watching, waiting . . .

Clara, the girl he left behind, dreams of being found.
Her mother is falling apart but she will not give up hope.

The Collector has found an apprentice to take over his family’s legacy.
But he can’t forget the one who got away and the detective who destroyed his dreams.

DS Etta Fitzroy must hunt him down before his obsession destroys them all.

What people are saying about The Collector

'If you haven't read Fiona Cummins and you're a Mo Hayder fan, make sure you read her first book and then her second. With the lights on.' – Emma Flint, author of Little Deaths

'I didn't think anything could top Rattle, but The Collector might just have done it. Chilling, heart-breaking and bloody brilliant.' – Tammy Cohen, author of When She Was Bad

'This book should come with a health warning: Don't read just before going to bed at night.' – Michelle Frances, author of The Girlfriend

'Totally, totally brilliant. Even more twisted than the first one. A whole another level of serial killer awesome.' – Lisa Hall, author of Between You and Me

'Spine-chilling and brilliant, beautifully written, creepily clever and utterly absorbing - just like Rattle.' – Karen Hamilton, author of Need to Know

'The Collector is sensational. Fiona Cummins is a twisted genius writing with a silver pen. This is crime at its grisly and glorious best.' – Amanda Jennings, author of In Her Wake
