A lot of what I’ve described is par for the course with this genre, so much lies in the execution. The writer must stir the same ingredients more or less into the pot as everyone else, and work magic with them all the same. And for me at least, this author did.
The tale is basically about the disappearance of a little girl in broad daylight and the myriad of repercussions that follow. I have to admit it took me about a third of the novel to be totally drawn in, but it was worth it to get to what came after. This book features the infrequent combination of a first-rate crime plot plus excellent characterization. We get a good look at the far-reaching effects of “an innocent affair” and how adversely the lives of “innocent bystanders” can be impacted. We are mainly privy to the thoughts of Charlie Cameron, a private investigator with a traumatic past; but we also get a peek at the “rationale” of the abductor. We see the extreme pressure the police are under to crack the case and the repercussions on the psyche and personal life of one cop in particular. Other interesting players include a local rock star (Kate), a bar manager (Jackie), a former cop stricken with cancer (Ronnie), Charlie’s alcoholic assistant (Patrick), and a guy named Richard Hill.
I thought I had the identity of the abductor all figured out, but I was bamboozled at the end. I’m not sure the clues are strong enough for me to have had any chance of guessing the abductor’s identity, but perhaps some smarter reader might do so. I did love the myriad of surprises scattered throughout and the side plots.
All in all, I was favorably impressed by Mr. Mullen’s first novel, and I definitely plan to continue on with the series. Highly recommended.
