I would not recommend this book to anyone.
The book don't complete ends on cliffhangers (explain later) except for where was the daughter of the main character: Joe Tyler.
PI, Joe Tyler is good friend and live to help other families..ok. But, sadly, I found unable to had any empathy or sadness for him.
I could pinpoint I was tired of Joe, when hear the same rage words over & over. Yes, you explain that, but repeat it so much, that's more than I could take.
I'm tired of buying books & books & books (Explain later, remember) to know were his daughter are, not for me, except that the character was AWSOME, but Joe isn't one.
PART OF THE REVIEW:
It's one of my constant reminders to authors (Indies, Experience, Big Names, etc) fond of writing books without always use cliffhangers or because the 1st book sold well the 2nd the price higher up. When you see the rest of the books are almost for Free, so: "BABY STEPS".
An big seller of "books" could do that, had many loyal readers until they decide "not anymore", I wrote by experience (my favorite character was leave hanging trying to bring, what I called "new blood", to the series, that never ends with a "cliffhanger").
What happens, Oh, Damn..."Big Name Author", wrote the main character as paint on the Wall, almost invisible and the "new ones" got the "mains". Also, got parts of almost all the series and "create", HA HA", a "new book". The End, m many Readers said: "BYE, Big Author, Not a penny more from Me and the Reviews were Terrible".
Please, Authors...read the Reviews, your ARC's and beware that could be the End of many Careers.
I'm very honest with my Reviews, not only for me, the author or other readers, how an author know when did something good or need improvement?
How another reader believe in my review? If I didn't read the book, I don't Review. If the book is good, Review. If the book isn't good, Review.
With that we all benefit, readers, authors & readers searching for something new or special. My opinions are my own.
First I want to say that the book was an easy read. I was able to finish it in one afternoon. It could have used an editor, but the issues with wording and grammar were not egregious. If you are looking for a well plotted book (if youre willing to accept some unlikely coincidences) that is an easy read, then I would recommend this book.
If you do not care about characters and character development, read no further.
However, I could not tell if the author meant for the main character to be an unreliable narrator or whether this character was poorly conceived. The guy is impossible to root for. There is no way he would do anything except serve himself. Yet, time after time he steps out of character to move the plot along like he is someone else. I don't have time to rant about how self serving and scummy this guy is, but there is no way this guy helps anyone except himself. I believe the police, this guy probably did kill and bury his daughter.
Also, he is among his own kind. This location does not have a decent person among them. Everyone is a hooker, a pimp, or general scumbag. No one has any redeeming value except the guy who is unconscious for 95% of the book. The whole book is so heavy handed, no one in this world ever has fun and if it were a real place, we should wall it up and call it jail.
Lastly, characters who face a situation at least have to decide if they are going to change, even if they choose to stay they same. This guy has everything in his life turn around, and there is never a decision point to be anything other than a scumbag.
So, really only one flaw in the book, unfortunately the flaw is "all characters." I think this could have been a really good book if it had gotten an editor input early so the world could have some balance and the "hero" could have a little more consistency. Plus, an editor at the end to clean it up.
