Zoltan | 5 comments Thanks to everyone who reads this.

The book I am looking for is a mystery. At the start of the story a husband and wife (both in law enforcement) find out that their daughter has been kidnapped and killed. I believe the wife is local law enforcement and the husband is FBI (maybe DEA?). The little girl was killed by a known pedophile in the area. The local law enforcement out of respect to the wife (their co worker) take the husband to see the murderer at his house before they arrest him. They say they will give him a chance to kill the guy. The husband cant do it and the co workers think he is weak but end up arresting the guy.

The next few chapters describe the grief they go through excellently.

Eventually the husband gets approached by a group that works at seeking revenge (or maybe they word it getting justice) on murders who have gotten away with their crimes. They want the husband to be a part of the group. I think the group has to vote which cases to investigate and go after.

Thats about all i remember except it turns out that at least one person in the group set it up so that the husbands little girl would at least get kidnapped, if not out right murdered so that he would join the group

i know his character is at least in one more book. I read the preview of it in the first book and he is asked to help a couple find their missing teenage daughter.

Anyone know what i am talking about???

Zoltan | 5 comments Thanks for replying. That's not the series I am thinking of though. For sure both the husband and wife were in law enforcement and the wife worked for local law enforcement and the husband was for a different law enforcement agency. Also it was their only daughter that they lost. Myabe its wrong to call it a series because I only know about 2 books with the same characters, not sure if theres anymore.
