PLOT OR PREMISE
John Cuddy is asked by a grandmother to investigate the disappearance of her grandson, a prominent judge’s son…even though the judge doesn’t seem to want people looking for the boy. Cuddy goes looking anyway, even when a corrupt Sheriff tries to direct him away rather forcefully.
WHAT I LIKED
A huge cast of characters, with a couple of the series regulars just beginning to be fleshed out a little.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE
A few of the characters were one-dimensional, fifth business to the storyline – only there to pass along a vital clue, and it was usually pretty obvious that the author was trying to slip it by, since Cuddy himself doesn’t catch it.
THE BOTTOM LINE / TWEET
A great story.

I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I was not personal friends with the author, but I did follow him on social media.
