The author does  a great job of creating a character that is down on his luck, determined to find a killer and get his life back. Will helping this woman give him answers that he has been seeking? The author writes at a steady pace will clear and concise direction. It will get you hooked as you follow Thomas on his journey for the truth. The  ending will have you seeking out the next book in this series.
