    This was my first experience with author T.J. Jones. While it took me a bit to click with the writing and Eric as a character – overall this was an enjoyable listen. This story is unique in that while there is a romantic element, it’s at the very beginning stages and never culminates in more than a few kisses. Perfect for folks who prefer the focus be heavier on the mystery/suspense aspects than on relationship. That said, the relationship and banter between Eric & Maggie is truly delightful. Jones writes an intelligent, competent, and independent Maggie who charms the older and sometimes myopic Eric.

    I also enjoyed Eric’s growth as a character throughout the book and appreciated that while Eric is former military, he’s not presented as this perfect infallible super-soldier. He needs and accepts (albeit sometimes begrudgingly) Maggie’s help and acknowledges his shortcomings. Eric mentions his love of the series, Magnum P.I. and the book/perspective definitely has that feel to it – though incorporating more grit.

    Sensitive readers/listeners need to be aware that mention of human trafficking in the blurb is something to take notice of. The harsh realities of this issue run throughout the book and the topic is discussed fairly graphically. Jones is respectful of the ramifications on the victims and this gives depth and realism to the story.

    While an enjoyable and full book, I would consider this a cliffhanger – not only is Davey’s exact cause of death still unknown at the end, there are a lot of further mysteries and questions uncovered during the investigation. I am looking forward to book 2, My Sister’s Fear.

    This was my first time listening to narrator Tom Jordon. He gave characters unique voices and personalities. There were a LOT of emotions by numerous characters and he pulled them off well. I especially appreciated performance of the verbal sparring between Eric & Maggie.

    Didn’t get past the first couple of chapters. Just couldn’t tolerate the language and content. Too inappropriate for my taste. Sad when the story could have been clean and quite good.
