But the truth is that Kieran is not, by any means, what he seems.
In truth Kieran, with his degree in Child Psychology, runs a high end agency, a very high end agency indeed, that deals in a very precious commodity.
In fact, Kieran deals in the most precious commodity that there is. Stolen children.
It's probable that you could describe his business as being a sort of adoption agency. Although the parents and the child are unwitting and completely non-consenting participants.
All goes well for Kieran as children are spirited away from their families to be delivered to super rich oligarchs who have much more money than sense or moral fibre.
Until, that is, Kieran decides to kidnap Thomas who lives in the London borough of Chiswick.
He is on holiday with his family and it is planned that the family's au pair will snatch Thomas.
However, things go very badly wrong and the consequences for everyone concerned, but especially Kieran, are, to put it mildly, shocking.
This is a very well written book and will make an ideal Christmas present for lovers of thriller novels.
It is published by Matador at £7.99 and is available from the That's Books and Entertainment bookshop, which you will find to the right of this book review.
