He’s good at solving difficult mysteries. The dog is even better.
This time, the missing person is a 10-year-old boy who walked into the woods in the middle of the night and didn’t come back. With the antagonistic help of distractingly handsome FBI Agent Javi Merlo, it quickly becomes clear that Drew Hartley didn’t run away. He was taken, and the evidence implies he’s not the kidnapper’s first victim. As the search intensifies, old grudges and tragedies are pulled into the light of day. But with each clue they uncover, it looks less and less likely that Drew will be found alive.

The characters are just so damn unlikable
I actually l Thought the plot could have been really good, I found it hard to follow in some spots but overall thought it was an ok mystery plot. What really sunk this book for me was just how unlikeable all of the characters managed to be except for the dog, literally every character besides the dog I wanted to get crushed by a bolder. I found Javi to be soooooo annoying, I actually liked him in the beginning because I totally understand having a chip on your shoulder because you feel like you have to work harder then other people around you, this actually made me really like him in the first couple of chapter but then it keeps going. Sometimes characters who are assholes and know they’re assholes can be really endearing to me but what Javi has is just a fragile ego and a personality issue. He repeatedly states he knows he’s an asshole and doesn’t care about anything/anyone and gets why people don’t like him but then in the next sentence he feels the need to keep telling Cloister that they aren’t dating even though Cloister never says anything to insinuate that they are besides be a decent human being??? It’s just a stupid thing to keep saying how unlikeable you are but then tell someone not to like you because your so irresistible?? Then Cloister is sort of okay but you learn so little about his mysterious past that is continuously mentioned but not explored that I never felt like I got to know him at all. It ended up being very frustrating how much the past that made him is mentioned but never discussed like a tease. The entire family of the missing boy are just worst from the mom to the brother I hated them and had no sympathy. Overall I thought the book could have been good but the characters (besides the dog) are just a miss for me.

Intriguing mystery suspense
This book is an intriguing mystery suspense. Both Cloister and Javi are interesting complex characters. this story has a sexual relationship but it is not a romance but that's OK because it fits these men really well.
The story starts out as one missing child case and evolves into much more spanning several missing persons and years. I was shocked and love a good mystery I don't guess in the first few pages or in this case, not at all.
Cloister's dog is the main character as well and I love how she was written into the story. I would love more of these guys!
The narration was spot on. both men had very clear voices and the pacing was great. I think the narration really made this book.
