Publisher's Summary

For fans of Craig Johnson and James Lee Burke - False Positive follows up the powerful punch of Andrew Grant's novel RUN with a staggering second dose of thrills and suspense that is just as smart, atmospheric, and soul searing.
Alabama detective Cooper Devereaux makes no apologies for his luxe lifestyle or the way he does his job. Most cops haven't lived the kind of life he has - starting out as an orphan, raised by a grizzled cop savior - and most don't use his kind of high-risk tactics. But he may have met his match in fellow detective Jan Loflin, who's fresh off a long undercover stint in Vice when they're partnered on a case that will test them both beyond their direst nightmares.
A seven-year-old boy has disappeared from his home in the Birmingham suburbs. But the more Devereaux digs into the missing child's background, the more he discovers about his own, eventually shaking loose a series of harrowing truths - about bloodlines, mass murder, obsession, and what two damaged detectives have in common with the innocent victim they're so desperate to save. This twisty pause resister - the debut of the Detective Cooper Devereaux series - hurtles at a mile a minute through an action-packed search for a missing child, culminating in an ending that no listener will see coming.

Good mystery

I really enjoyed this book right up to the last sentence. Not sure what the author's intent was. Irony? Foreshadowing? Cliche ?

Characters are too shallow

Just when you thought you'd get something more than a surface treatment, Grant goes off on another talent. This resulted in my not caring a whole lot about any of the characters. The story has wonderfully different ideas, but none of them come across as very believable since we don't know who these people are. I wish more time had been taken in building the primaries. That one piece alone would have added a star.
