When a young mother is found murdered in a derelict Eugene neighborhood - and her terrified young son is discovered hiding beneath the floorboards - Detective Jackson reluctantly takes the case. His own life is already in chaos, with his runaway teenage daughter, Katie, still gone and his girlfriend, Kera, facing her own family crisis. Matters get more complicated when the orphaned boy bonds with Jackson, triggering unexpected emotions and compromising his ability to investigate. Meanwhile, Detective Evans, one of Jackson’s most valuable colleagues, is pulled off the case to look into the death of a University of Oregon football star - leaving the homicide task force shorthanded. As Jackson works to solve the murder and find a home for little Benjie, he soon faces devastating choices that threaten everything he holds dear.

i love mysteries and thrillers. When i review, i tell it like it is. i'm single, and love erotica.
I found the story to be compelling, there were enough twists, and turns to keep the story fresh. The story was gripping,little Benjie daughter Katie, and Jackson's tough decisions kept things boiling.
I am a sucker for police stories, and this one kept me on the edge of my seat because it was unpredictable.
When Benjie plunged the eppi pen into Buckley. That was a clever plot twist.
Here is justice being served in a delightful, and satisfying way
"Conventional Detective / Thriller"
An enjoyable, light read. A police murder thriller. The thriller is not the most thrilling, though the mystery twists nicely. The characterisation is not especially well developed and some aspects of the back story are a little unrealistic, yet for all that enjoyable.
The performance is good, though the voices lack differentiation - especially the male voices which take on the same gruff growl.
Oh yes, and I was puzzled by what the author meant by "a mocking sound" which he uses more than once in conversations. Had me flummoxed that did.
Would I read another by the same author? Yes.
