Publisher's Summary

Former Chicago cop Selena "Lena" Dane has been going through the motions at her private investigation agency for years now. But then Lena learns that she's unexpectedly pregnant just as she takes on a heartbreaking new client: Nate Christianti, a fourteen-year-old boy in search of his biological father, Jason. Jason's disappearance isn't as clear-cut as everyone had thought, and Lena will need to follow his path of destruction halfway across the country to find Nate some answers. Along the way, however, Lena attracts the attention of a killer who's willing to stalk her all the way back to Chicago to make sure she drops Nate's case. To protect the boy, the baby, and herself, Lena must find the killer – or die trying.

    Any additional comments?

    Nope, there's no Old World in this series. No vampires, werewolves, or witches.* But I don't think you'll miss them.

    At the core of this new series is Lena Dane, an ex-Chicago-PD-turned-PI who is smart, highly competent, and seriously flawed. This is the story of her breaking away from some nasty baggage from the past and moving forward with her life.

    The mystery is complex and interesting, the action is well-paced, but it's the characters who shine. Lena, her dad, Nate.... I want to read more about all of them. Soon.

    If you enjoy Melissa F Olson's other series', I would highly recommend this one as well.

    *One of the characters always smells like blood. A little of the Old World creeping into Lena's world, perhaps????

    "excellent"

    I was really miffed that the author chose to start a new series instead of writing another one for the series I had come to love and now I have to remove a most excellent pout as once again she has produced a winner
