Alabaman police Detective Cooper Demonbruen, recently returned to the force after a suspension, is hot on the heels of a wiley and experienced kidnapper. Demonbruen's record is a minefield of red flags and question marks: how is a Birmingham cop able to afford a Porsche, a penthouse, and a summer cabin? Why does he have so much success with the petty criminals who form his network of confidential informants? And is there a legitimate explanation for the multiple excessive-force complaints on his jacket?

Really short chapters are not really my bag and despite keeping up the pace, the story ends up being disjointed and unravelling from its thread. Nonetheless, a solid effort which is well above average for a procedural even given the amount of verbiage needed to create the back story for the protagonist.

I LOVE being the first to read a new book beginning a new series. Fast paced, multiple points of view; some of them hidden from reader to add extra oomph. I usually dislike short chapters, but it served the story well in this case. Really DID see the twist coming, but it was a dozy! Another flawed cop to add to my list. If you enjoy fast paced suspense, you'll really like this one!
