A False Dawn,
This review is from: A False Dawn (Hardcover)
The unexpected twists and turns in Lowe's first crime novel, A False Dawn, are indeed reminiscent of John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee series. But then the scene shifts and the plot delves into a Florida Noir nightmare of terrifyingly plausible acts of human trafficking, sexual slavery and body part harvesting. The likeable, widowed, former homicide detective Sean O'Brien, reluctantly tackles some of the most twisted, yet believable evil doers imaginable.
With his appealing daschund sidekick, Max, at his side, O'Brien relentlessly unravels the case of a lifetime, bringing him back from a long period of mourning to new dawn.

Nothing to do with your review, per se. I used to live at Patrick AFB as a preteen, and I also used to read my dad's JDM books there. lol I really enjoyed his books then. I'll have to give this one a try if it's the same sort of flow.
