If your life was on the line, how far would you go?

Surgeon Jacob Thorn isn’t worried when the police interview him over nurse Katy Leith’s disappearance. She is a co-worker, nothing more. But when a leaked video of him and the missing woman arguing goes viral, the social media reaction is vicious.  

When harrowing images of the kidnapped woman start to appear on his phone, along with a demand from her abductor that Jake confesses to a crime he has no recollection of committing, he is forced to act or face terrifying consequences. 

He needs to delve into the past for answers. But time is running out for Katy. 

Will he admit to his failings and lose everything, or plead ignorance and let an innocent girl die? 


Dylan Young grew up in a mining village in South Wales before boarding a train for university in London. A career in the NHS followed, but the urge to write never went away. Three dark psychological thrillers for Random House emerged in the late nineties, two of which were made into BBC films. Over the last decade, under different pseudonyms, he’s written children’s books and an adult contemporary fantasy series. But his liking for crime (writing) never died. 3 books in the Detective Anne Gwynne crime thriller series are now available; The Silent Girls, Blood Runs Cold, and before She Falls. The Appointment, a standalone psychological thriller, is now out from Bloodhound Books.

My Review

I found The Operation to be a well written and a very intense thriller that had some unexpected twists and turns, which kept me guessing throughout, although I did have my suspicions ;).
The characters were realistic and the storyline was brilliantly thought out.
I highly recommended this book and look forward to more books by Dylan Young.
