Timely subject, quick paced, great descriptions of MS, with the cajun touch thrown in. Would have loved to have a little more character developement & background stories to tie it all together. Would love to see this become a series to allow for the developement & evolution of the main characters & the "special ops" team. The author has good insight & presented a good solid first novel. Keep up the good work! Let's see what comes next, sha!

Do not let the term "First Time Author" deter you. The powerful, timely novel will leave you clamoring for more. Pedophilia, the rampant incurable malady, prods you to consider the question, "Is the ultimate solution the only solution?"

Wow,what a novel. I feel like I know the characters personally. Detective Shaun Sullivan and Sargent Frank Williams are definitely the kind of people I would like to include in my circle of friends. If you are the kind of person who sees the world through rose colored glasses, this may not be the book for you.
