About the Book:
Rick desperately wants to reunite his family and help provide for Krista’s future—one he fears he won’t be alive to see. A jumpstart toward that future appears in the form of Peter Stone, Rick’s longtime enemy. Stone offers Rick $50,000 to find a woman he claims can save his life with a kidney transplant. Rick can’t pass up the chance to buttress Krista’s future.
When what seems like a simple missing person case spirals out of control into cryptocurrency machinations, dead bodies, and an outgunned faceoff, Rick is forced to battle evil from his past. Can he stay alive long enough to see his family one last time?
This is novel is more watching a PI Cahill find a missing person than it is a mystery. But he is opposed in his work so there is action involved, especially the shootout near the end. Most of the time, however, Cahill chases leads, follows some people and interviews others. This novel would appeal to those who like a hard boiled PI.
There is some of Cahill's personal life in the plot, such as his commitment to his estranged wife and their child. I was surprised, however, that the CTE with which Cahill had been diagnosed really played no part in this novel.
I have read a couple of the previous novels featuring Cahill and have appreciated following his work. I wonder if this is the end or if he will find other adventures.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
