Playlist for a Paper Angel


One child found, one child missing – what’s the connection?

DS Jan Pearce is still searching for her missing son. When she finds a little girl, Elise, alone in a pram in a busy town centre, she must unravel a mystery that takes her to the edge of her emotions. Then another child, Dara Price, goes missing.

Lisa Connelly, Elise’s mother, has been forced into a life of prostitution and has been leaving her little girl alone. Her gangland boss is holding her prisoner but she wants her little girl back.

Jan finds herself balancing her search for her son with finding Dara. Her right hand man, Mike Waring, is on another case so she and her temporary partner, profiler Damien Booth, must solve the puzzle and find Lisa before time runs out for Dara.

Playlist for a Paper Angel is the second in the DS Jan Pearce series of novels and is the sequel to Random Acts of Unkindness.

A Day in the Life of Jan Pearce

A Guest Post by Jacqueline Ward

Jan gets up early. She feeds the cat, Percy, grabs some toast, showers and dresses from her capsule wardrobe.

She arrives at work and goes through the previous day’s cases and any development.

At 10am she briefs the team and spends the rest of the day on cases, listening to her rock playlist on the way.

She checks her emails on her phone and answers the urgent ones immediately.

She leaves the department around 6pm and goes home to feed Percy and cooks pasta. Jan hates supermarkets and has her groceries delivered.

In the evenings she loves to watch box sets and films – on a weekend night she’ll go to the pub with Lorraine.
