The book is written in short chapters that left me going for "just one more chapter" more times than I can count. This is the second book in a seven book series, and former San Diego police officer, Joe, is as troubled as a man whose daughter was snatched from under his eyes should be, yet the good in him is obvious from the beginning. While he had a relationship with several strong women throughout the book, romance never happened.
The author did not go as far as I would have liked in developing Joe's supporting cast. I assume that book one gave us a better look into his ex-wife, and I suspect that book three might just bring them back together, but I would have liked to get to know more about her in this book. There were several characters, in fact, who could have used stronger back stories to add to this thriller.
As much as I enjoyed the book, I felt cheated by the ending. It left me hanging, as though the last chapter was somehow misplaced. I prefer books that have solid conclusions over those that are written in serial format, but I will definitely pick up book three and see how it ends.
