This is a gripping story that immediately captures your interest and later leaves you hoping for a sequel. Once the tragic circumstances set forth in this novel are resolved, you still want to continue to follow the lives of the well developed characters to see what happens to them next. The reader, like the father in the novel, ends up recognizing or sensing the very real possibility that the family will forever feel the fallout of this book's tragedy both internally and externally. You find you want to know what the long term effects are on each family member and how the family unit as a whole handles them later in life. The book's plot is very well crafted, and the story hard hitting, especially because it is written from the perspective of a tortured father/law enforcement officer. It's a fascinating read, one I will not soon forget.

This well written page turner is a story of a terrible crime told from the point of view of the victim's father who also happened to be a police officer. It is an agonizing position because the father in him wants revenge, yet the law officer in him believes in the justice system. You feel the pain and the frustation of a family caught in the seemingly never ending cycle of delays. This book gives insight into a world we hope we never need to know. submitted by Rita Martinson
