Amanda Gleason's baby son is very ill. He needs a stem cell transplant from a matched donor to survive. Unfortunately, Amanda is not a candidate and the baby's father - Paul Everett - was the victim of a presumed homicide though his body was never found. But a friend has sent a cell phone picture that looks like Paul that she recently took in Washington, DC. Amanda takes the picture and all her hopes to Forensic Instincts in the hopes that they will be able to find Paul in time to save his son's life.

The five members of Forensic Instincts - six, if you count the bloodhound Hero - take the case and almost immediately find out that it is much more complicated than they had thought. The head of the company is Casey Woods, a trained behavioral and investigative profiler. Marc is a former Navy SEAL and FBI agent. Paul is also former FBI. Claire is a psychic and Ryan is the tech genius. All are committed to helping Amanda save her son.

Forensic Instinct's investigation leads to cover-ups, corrupt politicians, the mob and an FBI investigation that they are in danger of blowing. The story was well-done, exciting, and a hard to put down read. I had a pretty good idea who the major villain was early in the story but wasn't at all sure that the team would be able to find Paul Everett in time.

When I began the story, I first thought that some of the dialogue was stilted but, as I engaged more in the story, I stopped noticing it. This was a very good story for lovers of thrillers that have high-stakes investigations but without resorting to any sort of graphic violence. The pacing is fast which goes along with the timetable that they need to meet to save baby Justin's life.

I recommend this one highly.
