Publisher's Summary

If someone took your child, how soon would you stop looking for her? If someone accused your best friend of a terrible crime, when would you stop defending him?
Seven years after Joe Tyler's daughter Elizabeth was abducted, he hasn't stopped looking for answers, and he hasn't forgotten the friend who stood by him as he lost his wife, his home, and his career in his search. Now he's been brought back to San Diego by the news that this friend has been arrested for beating up a teenage girl - a girl not much older than Elizabeth would be now.
Joe is convinced Chuck Winslow is innocent, but Chuck is in a coma and can't explain what happened. And the more Joe hears about what Chuck's been up to in the years he's been gone, the less Joe recognizes his old friend. To find out the truth, he will have to face his ex-wife, his former bosses, and a hometown full of wealth, lies, and illicit privilege. When Chuck's accuser goes missing, Joe must decide where his loyalties truly lie.

Excellent procedural GREAT Characters!

This book begins with Joe Tyler returning to a San Diego, a place he never wanted to see again. He's an ex police officer who is now a private investigator who specializes in finding missing children. He chose to quit the police force when his own daughter was abducted eight years ago. At first he drank himself in to a stupor and finally realized that wasn't going to get his daughter back.
Now his best fried is in the hospital, in a coma and accused of beating up a girl in high school, that girl is missing. Did she leave on her own or was she abducted? The conflicting stories about her home life aren't helping either.
The secrets and scandals (like teenage prostitution) he uncovers could ruin the lives of many, mostly wealthy members in the community.
And in the background Joe is still looking for his own daughter. She would be 16 years old now...
Chris Andrew Ciulla does an excellent job narrating.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book.

Fast Paced Missng Person Hunt

Joe Tyler is an ex San Diego detective who specializes in finding missing children. He quit the police force and his marriage 7 years earlier when his young daughter was abducted. When his best friend is accused of beating up a teenage girl, he is drawn back to his hometown where he lost his daughter.

Somewhat like a Jack Reacher, Tyler wanders around the country doing what he failed to do for his own family, helping parents find their lost children. And like Reacher he is deadly with his hands, doesn’t mince words and is the best at what he does.

Good detective story

If you are into detective stories this has many twists and turns, and not all is as it seems until the end. I am more into fantasy so that's why I only gave it a 3. That said may get next book as there are some loose ends that need to be finished.
