Brett Battles' second Logan Harper novel (after LITTLE GIRL GONE) is easily as good as any thriller on the market, and better than most because of realistic characters and a believable plot. Here are everyday people drawn into an all too possible web of evil that, once evident, ought to chill you to the bone. Once again, as in the first book, the relationship between Harper and his 80-year old father is especially good, with authentic emotion and excellent dialog. Battles's characters are not indestructible super-heroes, and the violence they encounter is a natural result of the story, making this one a highly recommended must-read.

While being a second book in The Logan Harper series "Every Precious Thing" is a stand alone read, so readers won't have to be worried about becoming lost if they haven't read the first book (Little Girl Gone).

In "Every Precious Thing" Logan Harper is asked by a friend to help find Sara Lindley the missing wife of a client. She disappeared during a weekend away with her husband Alan. Though reluctantly, Logan agrees to look into the disappearance of Sara and with the help of his father and various characters they set out to find why she disappeared leaving her husband and child behind. The more they learn the more questions develop as a chilling mystery unfolds.

Brett Battles has created a believable story line with lifelike characters whose interactions are just as enthralling as the storyline itself. At the end of the story I was still wanting more and look forward to reading more books written by Brett Battles. I'd give "Every Precious Thing" a strong 4.5 star rating and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys chilling mysteries and/or suspense novels.

*Review*

Every Precious Thing is second novel in the Logan Harper series and follows Little Girl Gone. Logan Harper is a former military man who ended up on the wrong end of an investigation. Returning home after losing his job, he went back to work with 80 year old father at Dunn Right Auto and Repair. In Little Girl Gone, Harper was asked to help a man get his granddaughter back from Thailand after she was taken, and now, he is asked once again to find someone that has gone missing.

Callie Johnson is a lawyer and a friend of the family who asks Logan for help in finding Sara for Alan after she has been missing for 7 weeks. Sara Lindley disappeared after going away for a weekend getaway with her husband Alan. Sara is a mysterious woman with a past that she is trying to run away from. By leaving Alan, and her daughter behind, she hopes that those after her will somehow not find her or her husband and daughter Emily.

Every Precious Thing is a mystery and a thriller all wrapped into one. It really delves into the baby making industry where scrupulous wealthy individuals and doctors work together to produce babies for body parts. It also drives home the point that no matter how much money you are offered, you HAVE to make sure that you read the bottom line so that nothing comes back and bites you in the ass.

Logan is an interesting character who is surrounded by even more interesting older wiser men calling themselves WAMO Wise Ass Old Men. Logan's relationship with his father breaks new ground when a mysterious letter arrives along with the book The Lost Horizon. I actually liked the ending, as well as how Battles wraps up part of a mystery surrounding a long missing relative from World War II.

Logan Harper is becoming an expert at finding lost women. Fresh from his search for a friend's lost granddaughter in Thailand (Little Girl Gone), he is now seeking a "lost" wife in Every Precious Thing.

The woman (happily married with a loving husband and sweet toddler) simply abandons her husband (mystery 1), leaving behind a note in the trunk of their car. Then we discover that the wife never legally existed (mystery 2), that some other man and woman are seeking to protect her (mystery 3) while another group is seeking to hurt her (mystery 4). But is it her that they seek or someone else within her family (mystery 5)?

I always advise my writing students to multiply mysteries, whenever possible. Every Precious Thing could serve as a perfect exemplar in this regard. The canvas is smaller in Every Precious Thing (Logan and his posse's quest takes him to Arizona, the Grand Canyon, California border country, Riverside and the Simi Valley) but the book is longer, the cast of characters larger, the architectonics of the plot a tad smoother and more refined, the bad guys very bad indeed.

While Little Girl Gone was excellent, Every Precious Thing takes everything up a step or two. I look forward to Logan Harper's next outing.

Highly recommended.

I had read the first Logan Harper book and enjoyed it. While the plot in this second installment was somewhat similar to the first (Logan is trying to find and rescue someone), it was different enough that it didn't seem like a rehash. Once again, I enjoyed the characters and felt that I learned more about the central figures. I was most impressed by what Mr Battles did with some of the lesser characters. The fact that, at several points, I found myself saying about one of them "good! I hope they DO shoot you" made me laugh to myself, realizing that I had bought into what the author must have wanted the characters to be - solid, believable, and yes, annoying (at times). All in all, I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it.
