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 (★★★★☆)
A great story.
