Two years later a Private Investigator is hired by a man whose own daughter went missing six months before. Why this Private Investigator? Why now? Is it just that the Wyoming police are not interested or do not care?
This moves along with a good pace. There is also the fair share of twists.
From my angle it would have been a help if I had read the earlier books in the "Sloane Monroe" series. The reason being is that this is part of the "Deadly Dozen 12 Mystery/Thrillers" that I am currently reading.
By the time you reach the end of this you hope that what you want to happen will in the follow up to this.
I like the lead character Slone Munroe and the hints at her back story mean I will be going back to read the earlier books. Mind you I wanted to yell at her about her choice of men. The only flaw I found in the book was the ending which without giving any spoilers resolved much to easily
To me, a book like this is only as strong as its central character. However gripping the action or original the plot, I'll quickly get bored if the characters are cardboard cutouts without depth. In Sloane Monroe, Cheryl Bradshaw has created a female PI who is real, easy to relate to, interesting and individual. Sloane reminds me a little of Kinsey Millone in Sue Grafton's Alphabet series, and that's a serious compliment. I don't mean to suggest that Bradshaw has borrowed anything from Grafton - just that Sloane is not an over the top, unbelievable character, but is someone we might feel we could meet walking down the street, natural and likeable.
Having said this, I should add that the plot is also a real plus factor, original, with plenty of twists and turns; and Cheryl Bradshaw has the knack of revealing just enough new knowledge of what's going on at a pace which kept me the turning the pages, reluctant to put the book down until I'd read, 'Just one more chapter.' And since the chapters aren't too long, this worked well - I always wanted one more.
The ending is beautifully managed, with satisfactory resolution of the main themes and a final very unexpected twist. I'm looking forward to the next one - but meanwhile, I've three former books in the series to catch up on - always a good feeling! Highly recommended.
This book will have your insides in turmoil, it grasps you from the start. It follows the PI Sloane in her case of finding 2 girls that have been kidnapped. This is the first Cheryl Bradshaw novel I have read and it won't be the last.
