Publisher's summary

Robbery, arson, murder, and the one night stand that just won't end.

With 11 missing women to find and six high-profile burglary cases to solve, the last thing Detective Nathan McNamara needs in his life is one more complication. And that's exactly what his recent one-night stand is becoming - complicated. With his heinous lieutenant breathing down his neck for answers and his accidental girlfriend dropping hints for a commitment, Nathan is realizing that his career and his bachelor status are both on the line.

When the burglary cases suddenly escalate to homicide, Nathan must put everything else aside to stop the killer. But this is easier said than done when the blonde from the bar repeatedly shows up at his doorstep and enlists his own mother against him. Now he's more convinced than ever that his job hangs in the balance and that the Surgeon General's warning on the whiskey bottle should include something about women.

Loved the back story but...

Nathan's backstory was refreshing however the narration was painful. He did a perfect Nathan but the female, children and Black voices were cringe-worthy. I was actually grateful that it was a quickie as much as I wanted to hear more of the story.

Good start to Nathan's book!

This was a good prequel to Nathan's book. Got to know him better and how he ended up with Shannon. I like him even more now than I did before.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and totally recommend it.

The narration was great. Carson Beck did a great job. The women sounded like women and he has a nice reading voice.

Nice back story

A nice back story, but not all that exciting if you haven't read the first book.

I enjoyed the main character however.....

the primary story was too short . the secondary story plot, concerning the abductions was flimsy, we needed more than a one dimensional view from Mac's prospective .......

Awful narrator

The narrator is horrific. Not just conversations and women’s voices, but even Nathan’s voice. Didn’t want to finish
