Disappointing... Dillard's Integrity Discarded!

This story lacked a lot, in my opinion. I love the Joe Dillard's stories so much that I just knew the storyline would pick-up and take an unexpected twist and save my overall disappointment. I should have listened to Ted of Lancaster's warning and "passed on this mess!"

Dillard is hired to find a missing child, but it did not develop into a compelling story. The return of his wife's disease (cancer) and the unexpected appearance of Dillard's thought-to-be-dead father did not elevate the story. But Dillard was push over the edge emotionally.

A constant throughout this series is Dillard's integrity which was discarded in this story. As Ted of Lancaster said, "Pratt debases that strength by setting Dillard to beating an innocent man senseless and senselessly. The deliberate violation of due process added nothing to the plot and in fact contradicted what integrity the narrative and Dillard had earned." Amen!

Tim Campbell is a great narrator of this series.

A good one but not the best

To be honest...Scott Pratt is a victim of his own success...
This book was his most "typical" book and even a stretch of a storyline.
Whereas I was blown away by his other books, this one, while good was not memorable.
For most authors a 4star solidly written book would be a win... For Mr Pratt, I'm left a little let down because his other books are so good.
The reasons are a) the storyline was much more typical legal drama with only a little twist at the end. I actually expected a much bigger twist then we got... I won't elaberate due to spoiler.
It was a good book but not memorable like his previous ones. Although some subplots were included they didn't intertwine into the Storey like they normally do. There was much less personal drama with the main character.
Mr Pratt has done such a great job of making the story about Joe Dillard and the case is merely an extension of him, that a story sticky about a case with no progress in Joe Dullards story left me feeling let down about the book.
I'm looking forward to the next one, hoping Scott Pratt gets back in the swing of things.
