Publisher's Summary

Jaxon Jennings. Cop. Homicide detective. Partner. He always had your back and rarely made mistakes. Until the death of his son. Until the night he couldn't save him. Until everything he held dear was taken away from him. Now, a shell of a man, his reckless actions mark him as a burn-out. A Loner. A dangerous man whom many in the Fairfax County Police Department cannot trust. The criminals he pursues in the suburbs of Washington D. C. are nothing more than ways to bide his time until his next drink, next fix, next loss of control. His past haunts him no matter how hard he tries to hide from it.

So, when a boy's body shows up floating under the ice of a quiet neighborhood pool, Jaxon finds himself immersed in a world where the ghosts of his past feel too close for comfort. A psychopath is using the innocent in ways that appear familiar.

Jaxon's past is catching up with him. And the anger that seethes below the surface threatens to destroy not only his life, but the lives of a group of kids somehow connected with him. The answers are locked, frozen in the part of his past he refuses to confront. But people are counting on him. And he must do anything to save them. Anything. Even if it costs him his life.

good book.<br />

I liked the story, it was interesting. The action was exciting. I read every word. Sometimes I skip over parts, but not in this book.

Too tedious

I only had time to download one audible book before eye surgery. It was harder getting through this dialog than my recovery. Too much needless description and mundane conversation. The plot was not exciting and the characters thin.

Implausible Plot, Little 'Fact Followthrough'

First time reading this author; the story had the potential of being very good - but there were too many disjointed 'angles' - all great if their path would have ended in one place - but they didn't, and that left me with a sense of unfulfillment - lots of 'sensation' -- little 'closure'.
I have read hundreds and hundreds of audible books; I have never written a thumbs down review - till this one.

Excellent storyline

Really well written and the choice of voice for the audio was a good one as it made the creepy scenes much more spine chilling that if you were reading it yourself.

Excellent

This story is great. I enjoyed reading it and listening to it brought it back to life fully.
I think Jaxon is a great character and this story just starts as it means to go on. It’s full and I will be getting more. I need more Jaxon!
