Alabama detective Cooper Devereaux makes no apologies for his luxe lifestyle or his high-risk tactics. But he may have met his match in fellow detective Jan Loflin. Devereaux's just beat an abuse charge and Loflin is fresh off a long undercover stint in Vice when they're partnered on a case that will test them both beyond their wildest dreams.

A seven-year-old boy has disappeared from his home in the suburbs. But the more Devereaux digs into the missing child's background, the more he discovers about his own. His investigation leads to a series of harrowing discoveries-about bloodlines, mass murder, obsession, and what two damaged detectives have in common with the victim they're desperate to save.

This twisty page-turner hurtles at a mile a minute through an action-packed search for a missing child, culminating in an ending that no reader will see coming in this debut in the Detective Cooper Devereaux series.

Really short chapters are not really my bag and despite keeping up the pace, the story ends up being disjointed and unravelling from its thread. Nonetheless, a solid effort which is well above average for a procedural even given the amount of verbiage needed to create the back story for the protagonist.

I LOVE being the first to read a new book beginning a new series. Fast paced, multiple points of view; some of them hidden from reader to add extra oomph. I usually dislike short chapters, but it served the story well in this case. Really DID see the twist coming, but it was a dozy! Another flawed cop to add to my list. If you enjoy fast paced suspense, you'll really like this one!
