Just finished reading "Child's Play" by Darcia Helle. Below is the review I left on Amazon Kindle:

I read the whole series of the Michael Sykora novels and this one certainly did not disappoint. I found it difficult to put down the book (or I should say "switching off my Kindle reader"). As always, Darcia Helle maintained the kind of pace that while not too quick was just right for this book's tempo. Because it was a long time since the 3rd Michael Sykora novel, I'd forgotten quite a few details about the characters. In this 4th novel, Darcia Helle brought the characters back to life for both existing fans of Michael Sykora and newbies who are reading the novel as a stand alone.

Darcia Helle's talent lies in writing the kind of story that keeps the reader engaged with its many twists and turns. She also tackles the very delicate and taboo topics of pedophiles and child trafficking, which she treats with the care and the kind of foresight that gets the point across without being brutal about something that is extremely emotive. Kudos for this, Darcia!

Overall, I really enjoyed Child's Play, and I personally feel that the whole series should be made into either a film or a series of films. It is a shame that film producers are so shortsighted that they overlook the talent that is hidden among authors who do not get marketed by the 5 big publishers. They (and many readers out there) only seem to read what the big 5 publishers tell them to read, and as a result they miss out on the gems hidden within the world of smaller publishers and independent publishers. I make this statement because authors like Darcia Helle possess the kind of great talent that has been left untapped and which should be unleashed to the whole world.
