This is the first book I’ve read in the series, and the only reason I’m going out of order is because I have an ARC of Moonlight Mile, which continues this story, sitting in my TBR pile. The good thing is that enough backstory is filled in for this to be a pretty decent stand-alone novel. In many ways, this is your standard child kidnapping/criminal enterprise story, but there are a few twists and turns along the way that make it stand out. Most of all, I think what holds it apart is the concept of a happy ending not necessarily being the best ending, and that sometimes following the law isn’t the only choice. I’m not sure I agree with how Lehane ends the story, but I understand why he did it. Most of all, I’m looking forward to reading more in this series.
