Cold Case Detective Paul Sutton has dedicated his life to evil.
To bringing justice to the dead and answers to the living. His life is spent straddling the line between the light of truth and the darkness of man's blackest sins. The Detective Paul Sutton series begins with First One Down, when Sutton is given a second chance to solve the case that's haunted him for two years.
Behind the mask of light lay darkness...
It took San Diego Detective Paul Sutton exactly 11 days to realize retirement wasn't going to work out for him. Back on the job as a cold case detective, Sutton has the chance to delve deeper into the only case of his career he's been unable to solve. A woman's tortured body had been abandoned on a beach. Her tormented husband has never stopped grieving. And a missing woman may hold the key to unlocking a deadly puzzle.
How does a girl who has everything going for her find herself in such a mess? Driven in her career but careless in love, Kali Hanson is in thrall to the one man who can fulfill the dark desires within her. But after an act of ultimate betrayal, she finds herself tangled in a web of deceit, where a charming mask can conceal a monstrous soul, and the brightest light is in danger of being extinguished in the depths of darkness.
As boundaries blur and the difference between truth and lies becomes indistinguishable, Detective Sutton finds himself in a race against a ticking clock. Only one thing is certain: if Sutton doesn't stop him, the monster will keep on killing, and another innocent woman will be lost forever to his darkness. But Sutton is not about to let evil win this time.
