A broken cop. A fragile child. Will they save each other?
Harvey's training at The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children prepared him for the most important case of his career to date, the abduction of eight-year-old Gabriel Wheeler. Nothing, however, could prepare him for the boy's blame-shifting mother from hell who shoots up instead of alerting police when the boy goes missing. Nor is Harvey equipped to deal with the heartbreak when his girlfriend leaves him on the same night, taking Effie, the non-biological young daughter Harvey adores.
The case goes cold when Harvey fails to interview Effie's best friend, the only witness able to identify the perpetrator's car. As police resources are wasted on dead ends and wrong suspects, Gabriel receives unlikely help to escape from Willard Crawley, a simple-minded abductor seeking a replacement for the infant brother he accidentally suffocated years before.
Book 1 in the Missing & Exploited Suspense Series, ALL THAT REMAINS explores childhood resiliency in a dangerous adult world.
I've become very skeptical of free books, but...
this one turned out to be a pleasure.
A small boy is kidnapped by a deranged psychotic, and a newly separated police officer begins the chase to save him.
The writing is muscular and mature, with no cloying undertones, and the plot is engaging (although there are several implausible twists which are disappointing). I look forward to reading more in the series.
Great book. I didn't want to put it down.
Read this book while traveling and could not put it down until I finished.
