review 1: This is a debut novel from this author. I'll be looking for more from him. He creates an honest family- and home-loving man who wants to find bad people. There's something that happened in his past that puts him in an elite squad that has a lot of in-fighting.

McAvoy's boss, Trish Pharaoh, is an excellent character, but the hint of an attraction between them seemed forced, as McAvoy is supposedly deeply in love with his wife. Nonetheless, a good debut. less
