In Vancouver police detective Frank Langer, Jay Allan Storey has developed a lead character who will fight to seek out the truth, even though Frank's still on 'stress leave' following a mental breakdown a year ago. Yet another detective with personal problems? OK, but this doesn't detract from the story.
Against opposition from his former colleagues, Frank reluctantly agrees to investigate the disappearance of a baby from a high-rise apartment. With the help and support of Community Support Officer Rebecca, the baby's aunt, he uncovers a sinister plot involving kidnapping of young children, and also begins his own recovery
The relationship between the two main characters, Frank and Rebecca, is skilfully developed as the story progresses to a satisfactory end.
The story ticks all the boxes in its genre, the dialogue sounds authentic and the characters and settings are well-drawn and believable. An enjoyable read.

This is the first book I have read from this author. He did a great job portraying PTSD and educating the reader about this disorder. In fact, he has a strong writing style that is full of good descriptions, believable conversations, strong characterizations, and good sentence structure. The book read smoothly and I didn't have any trouble when past events were inserted into the present.
The only thing I didn't like was the science fiction part. It was creepy to me. Really creepy. Without giving spoilers, which I detest, I can't say much more about that aspect. It ruined the enjoyment I had up to that point, but I finished the book in order to have the full picture of the book before reviewing. This is a totally personal viewpoint. This creep factor for me would, probably, make most readers laugh and wonder what is wrong with her?! That's fine by me. We all have different comfort levels regarding a variety of things.
If you don't have a problem with science fiction, I highly recommend this book. If you have a low creep factor like me, then you can take a chance or not. Jay Allan Storey can write! That stands out for me enough to say it again. The writing was excellent. I don't regret reading The Arx. It was worth it to read a well constructed story.
