Looking For Leo by J.A. Baker
2021 | Mystery & Thriller
One missing boy. Four possible suspects.
When young Leo disappears after leaving school, it sets a chain of events in motion that will change the lives of the residents of a quiet Yorkshire village forever.
Ashton returns home many years after committing a heinous crime as a child, and starts to teach an art class. Lynda, a stern secondary school teacher who unwillingly gave evidence against him, recognises her tutor as the troubled boy from all those years ago, bringing him the unwelcome attention he fears.
When Sarah, a bored housewife, hears about Ashton’s return, she convinces herself he is responsible for Leo’s disappearance and reports him to the police.
Terrified, the boy remains locked in a soundproof room, growing ever more scared of his unpredictable captor.
But just who took Leo and why?
And will he be found before it’s too late?
