How does a person react and act to a brusque and informal notice saying that his or her beloved child has been abducted? Worse still, how does the involved person control himself or herself against the prospect of informing the concerned authorities contrary to the kidnap note, which also recommends an absurd idea? Whatever the measures the parent has to take, it should be well calculated. The parent, who is a mother in this context, needs an analytical mind and, most importantly, nerves of steel. Such is the predicament which the mother, who is at crossroads, finds herself in the Cruxys Solutions Investigations series.

Incidentally, the title of the series is borrowed from the detective agency contained therein. Ruth Gonzales and Andy Vaslik, who are both private detectives and a dream team working in the said agency, are the featured protagonists in the Cruxys Solutions Investigations series.
Having been published relatively recently, there are, albeit understandably, comparatively fewer editions of the first book. Even so, the first edition out of the approximately three editions was initially published in January 2016, titled The Locker, and this series is shelved under the mystery, psychological thriller, contemporary crime fiction, and European (British) literature genres.

The Locker: The first book in the series, The Locker, chronicles the tribulation of the mother of the kidnapped child. The title of the book is also based on “the locker” which the mother liked most and wherein the kidnap note was found. The mother is called Nancy Hardman; she is a British citizen and her occupation is bookkeeping. The child, which is aged four and a baby girl, is called Beth. This child has been abducted alongside the nanny who is called Tiggi. Beth’s father is called Michael, who allegedly is an aid worker, is working in a foreign country but there seems to be more that meets the eye. The name of the gym is Fitness Plus.
The turning point in the said book is the kidnap note which has been slipped in the mother’s preferred locker in her go-to gym, suggesting that whoever did it was conversant with her routine. Specifically, the kidnap note states that she is behindhand on taking any spur-of-the-moment action; what’s more, it warns Nancy Hardman against notifying the police but advises her to notify her husband. On the flip side, her husband, the so-called aid worker, cannot be located. Fortunately for her, her husband provided her with a specific number and code which, on calling, prompted Cruxys Solutions Investigations detectives Gonzales and Vaslik into action.
The way through which the story develops proves Adrian Magson’s adroitness and is a stark reminder of when he was shortlisted for the Debut Dagger.
