About The Book

When young women start vanishing from Albuquerque, New Mexico, Detective Alyssa Wyatt takes the case. When her daughter's friend becomes one of the missing, it becomes personal.

"One of the best crime books I have ever read!!!" —5-star Reader Review
All around Albuquerque, New Mexico, young women are going missing—they seemingly vanish into thin air. With no link between the victims, Detective Alyssa Wyatt is quickly plunged into a horrifying case with no obvious clues. And when Jersey Andrews, the best friend of Alyssa’s teenage daughter, Holly, joins the list of vanished girls, the case becomes personal.

But this investigation will lead Alyssa and her partner Cord into the most sinister depths of humanity—an evil place where life is expendable and where the depraved can fulfil their darkest desires...if they have the money to pay for it. As the first bodies appear, abandoned on the streets, Alyssa is forced into a frantic hunt to track down the killers. But when the truth comes out, it seems that the key to solving the case was hiding in the last place anyone expected.

The Toybox is a dark, tension-filled and absolutely nail-biting crime thriller with a twist in the tale.

About The Author

Born in the South, raised in the Midwest, Charly Cox now resides in the Southwest in the Land of Enchantment, Green Chile capital of the world, which is good because she enjoys eating copious amounts of the spicy food. When she's not reading, writing, or plotting sinister evils with her antagonists, she enjoys doing jigsaw and crossword puzzles, hanging out with her husband and her spoiled Siberian Husky, visiting her son in Arizona, and traveling, preferably to places surrounded by sun, sand, and warm uncrowded beaches.
