Murder in the East End by Jennifer Ashley

When Kat finds out children are missing from the foundlings home, she's upset.  They're young, small and can't protect themselves.  Where did they disappear to?

Net Galley and Berkley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy now.

As she questions staff, they tell her they've been adopted.  But the addresses that have been given are either empty lots or new development going up.  When the little nurse living there and taking care of the children disappears it's another concern.  Kat gets her boyfriend to help.  He finds the nurse but she's dead.

Kat meets Daniel's older brother.  He was in love with the nurse.  She learns a lot about both of them as they look for the killers and the children.

They find themselves visiting the wrong side of town looking for the children.  Kat gets roughed up.  Soon Daniel has got the police helping them.

Will they find the children alive or dead?

This is a busy story with complications, but it's a good read.
