Synopsis:

He’s haunted by the memory of a kidnapping case gone wrong… 

Not wanting history to repeat itself, Detective Matt Brady struggles to solve the disappearances of seven young women, but he quickly finds himself pitted against a criminal organization that knows as much about police procedure as he does—an organization that will do whatever it takes to stay one step ahead of him. His troubles are compounded when a young veterinarian injects herself into the investigation and is targeted to become victim number eight. When he tries to protect her, he finds himself in the crosshairs of a professional cop killer. Can Brady solve the case in time to save his new love, or will this investigation be the death of both of them?

Review:

The author uses his experience as a law enforcement officer and as a lawyer to fashion a pretty tight who-dun it, that will leave the reading guessing til almost the end, then in disbelief. This is a book that will have you going back and re-reading to see where you might have missed a clue or two! He takes a modern issue- human trafficking- and gives it a few twists and turns to make a simple kidnapping in a 'normal' place into a nationwide case. This is a fast read, and I finished it in 2 readings! If you're looking for a book that reads like real life, and would make a great movie, check this one out!
