Summary

One missing girl and the whole city goes crazy.
 

It’s been three days and now everyone in Brighton is looking for her. There is an army of police searching, her picture is on every front page, and the public can’t get enough of it. Gangs of good citizens are going door to door, turning their neighbors’ houses upside down, but still no one can find her.
 

For Brighton’s No.1 Private Detective, Joe Grabarz, it brings back too many memories of his first case, another missing girl, when he learned too many lessons the hard way. No one was going door to door then. No one cared. But her mum and dad weren't nearly as photogenic, nor quite so saintly.
 

It’s a lesson Joe learned long ago that has come back to haunt him: Choose your parents wisely.
 

Warning: This book contains adult language, sex references, and violence (basically, all the good stuff).

Definite page turner!

It took me a minute to realize that two different stories are being told, but once that fact set in, this listen became an incredible and intense whodunnit. In both stories, children are abducted (just two, actually) and as a consequence, the way the parents responded and how the media reported on the disappearances are front and center. This story was brilliantly written!!

Joe Grabarz, the main character, is in his element. You get the joy of watching Joe as a seasoned private investigator as well as a still-wet-behind-the-ears Joe. Through both lenses is an incredibly well-narrated person with swagger and doubts and determination and indignation. He's written that way and he's performed that way.

This is the second book in the series but it is a complete stand-alone. It took me two days to listen because a family commitment forced me to stop. Other than that, this listen would have been gobbled up in one sitting.
