Gino Cataldi is a man hanging on by a thread. Cancer took his wife, and drugs put his son in rehab. The only thing he has left is his badge.
When a teenage girl is kidnapped it brings back nightmares from the worst case he ever worked—the one that tore his life to shreds and forced him out of Philadelphia.
Gino doesn't want this case but he knows he has to take it. Not just to save the girl, but to earn redemption for what went wrong in Philly.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It had excellent characters and a very good plot. The author tied everything and everyone together very nicely. I am looking foreword to more Gino Catalina mysteries.
Loved the emotion of Gino. In the end the question of how the caller knew about the Philly kidnappings ...was she one of the girls that he saved? VNA was very smart and kind-while a possible murderer at the same time. Now on to the next one...
A fellow Texan...
Wow. I have NEVER felt this way after reading a fiction novel. Words don't seem adequate to express this experience! This book is a MUST read - it has something for all genre readers. So many plot twists and turns to keep the reader invested, I could hardly put it down. Well developed characters kept me emotionally involved and left me satisfied when the book ended on a 'nobody walks away unscathed... But a sense of justice prevails' type of note. A wild ride indeed! You would be a FOOL not to take it. Now I will seek others from this author and pray this novel is optioned for a movie!
