What would you do if your child went missing?
Meet retired cop Sam Prichard.
Sam Prichard was a cop, and a good one, until bullets took out the joint of his right hip. Now he's trying to learn to live without being a cop, getting to know his neighbors, learning to walk again and even ride a motorcycle. Life is bearable, barely, but then he gets asked to find a missing child, and the lure of getting back into some kind of police work is too much for him to resist. When he teams up with computer whiz Indiana Perkins, he suddenly becomes one of the best investigators he's ever even known.
Now he's found the missing child, but it's thrown him right into the middle of something that may be a drug war - or could be a chance to stop the next 9/11! There's no way out for Sam, so he's in for the ride of his life, but when the girl he's becoming fond of is suddenly drawn into the line of fire with her own little daughter, Sam is ready to forget all the rules and do whatever is necessary to win the day.

The voice is very calm at all times, which lends itself to the suave spy genre, but detracts from any feeling of urgency or action.
God, this book is cliché. Luckily, there was enough intrigue to keep you guessing about who the bad guy was.
Recommended to fans of books with cool, damaged cops as the protagonist.
All of it, if this written by an adult maybe he needs to read some Lee Child or Connelly this is dire solve a case with 3 phone calls and a google search.
no one could make this work
it is all bad
please can i have the 4 hours of last night back and a proper grown up story
"Wow. I have found it"
Looking for a great new detective series. Yeah I found it! Good story, full of who is good and who is bad. Has some humor, human kindness, and keeps you guessing till the end!
So, if I got this right - the cute, petite MIT educated genius hacker goes home with the ex cop and proceeds to become his live-in '50's style cook/housekeeper and incidental Internet assistant; the 12-year old kidnap victim is returned by the terrorist drug lord not only unharmed but entertained and sated with ice cream; the hero gets the motorcycle and hot car - I'd have to have paid attention to get the rest of the boy entertainment value. Not being a boy, and never liking fairy tales, I was SO not impressed. This one's going on the "lame list."
"Light and fun mystery!"
The Sam Prichard series has real promise. The background is that cop Sam Prichard is shot in the hip and leg and is forced into retirement. He takes on a case for a neighbor who is the grandmother of a young girl who is missing. He is looking for computer help and finds it from a young lady, Indiana Perkins, who has a degree from MIT and 4 year old daughter. Sam gets a private detective license and starts the hunt. This book has lots of twists and turns. It is a thoroughly delightful listen. I'll definitely listen to the next book in the series.
"Good not great"
cost to much for such a short book need to lower price. wouldn't mind finishing the series. although I prefer more action.
Unbelievable fantasy fiction. Maybe a good read for the 10 year old. Kept hoping it would get better, but no.
"Great story line"
Injured cop helping
Indi because she funny
Lots of turns and twists
I do was homeless
The upstairs was dusty as hell
They never found the girl
"Excellent overall - loved it"
I loved the story and the characters and the style of the narration. Great twist at the end.
Good detective storyline. It kept my interest. It's a good light easy read. The narrator was good.
The is the second book I have read by this author. I liked him, it the books first few chapters where the same as first did not like that AT ALL.
"No sex, no swearing but still a good read.."
I was a little concerned about this book because of words that were a little too religious for me, used again and again. But I let it go because it was right after Sam had awoken from being shot. But then, Sam, Indie and Kenzie prayed before they ate, and I became worried again. The religious stuff stopped soon thereafter. Mr. Archer’s mystery/thriller/suspense books are a little tame for me. But that won’t stop me from trying another Sam Prichard book. But NOT until AFTER I read a couple of books with real life swearing and a little romance.
For the story part of the book? It was good. I did read Code Name: Camelot (Noah Wolf #1) by this author and THIS was much better. Sam was shot and had to take a medical retirement and soon became a PI. He’s first asked to find a 12 year old girl, which leads to a vial of some pretty nasty stuff. It was very interesting when Indie, his computer hacker, told him of how Herman, a computer program she wrote, worked. It didn’t make a bit of sense to me but it sounded good, like it could work. It sounded like a real hacker came up with the wording, LOL..
Then there was figuring out who the bad guy was, who should be trusted, Ingersoll or Winslow?
The firefight that happened in the safe house was pretty good. The good guy and Sam really took care of business.
The 2 or 3 lusty thoughts Sam had about Indie were something written for a 13 year old, so no worries there. I think one quick kiss was all there was. There were a couple of the less offensive swearwords, and they were only used a time or two. If you’re looking for something hot and steamy and with some real-life swearwords just keep looking, you won’t find anything like that here.
As to the narrator: Fabulous! Every single person, male and female alike, had their own voices. Mikael Naramore actually laughed out loud when the story called for it. He whispered, muttered, yelled, everything a narrator should do, he did.
