L.A. PI Burnside is hired to find the missing daughter of a governor. A second case finds him involved in the investigation of a football star who is on trial for beating up his girlfriend.
As always David Chill tells the story with great ease and confidence as we follow Burnside in his investigation, as often taking him into college and football territory.
He also is ready to become a father, making sure this book is also another importan chapter in his life.
We get a better look at how Burnside became the tough guy we know and love which made this one stand out from this reliable series.
There's not a hell of lot more to say, really. Every book in this series is solid, good old fashioned PI fiction without gimmicks, but full of heart.
