This book was thoroughly enjoyable. The plot was believable and the characters were *real*. They could have been a little more developed but they were still interesting. The relationship between Jack and his father, Jack and his partner, and most especially Jack and Wilcox could have been more developed. The relationship between Jack and Wilcox was left as only cop/boss until the end when Jack's father gives him the photo of the three of them together and we figure out there was more to the relationship than we thought. Had this been better developed earlier I think that the impact at the end of the story would have been greater. There was enough mystery in it to keep you interested while also allowing the reader to keep up with what is happening. The one thing I noticed and did not understand was the ages of the characters added after each was introduced to the storyline. Their ages were extraneous and added nothing to the story (with the exception of the 12 year old boy). I wish it had been longer. I didn't want it to end. Mr. Moxham did a wonderful job with this book. I give it a 4-1/2 stars.
