She attacked him. That was Nathan Parker's introduction to the secretive, nameless girl with a troubled past. A hesitant witness to the disposal of the corpses of two unidentified children, she ran from him. Repeatedly.
But for ex-cop Nathan Parker, running is not an option. Having found the bodies, he is inescapably tied to the case, even though it has nothing to do with his job as an insurance fraud investigator. Compelled to discover who the children were and who killed them, Nathan ignores the warnings of the detectives pursuing the case. He reconnects with the nameless girl, whose guarded, bizarre, and often aggressive behavior make working with her and prying information from her unwieldy challenges. On top of that, she has the habit of disappearing whenever the going gets tough.
In spite of the struggles of their reluctant partnership, they pick apart the tangled web of the conspiracy shrouding the deaths of the children. In this crusade, Nathan collides with his boss, the police, and his crumbling personal life. And with each step forward, the girl entangles him, pulling him further down a dark path that crosses the line between right and wrong. When their frenzied investigation ends, with the arrest of the architect of the conspiracy, she disappears again, running nameless, leaving Nathan to deal with the lawless chaos they created.

This is the fourth book in the series. It was published in 2013, has 435 pages, is well edited and is currently the last book in the series. I have enjoyed all of them so far. So much in fact, I have archived all of them. These novels are about a male insurance investigator with a propensity for finding dead bogies and who and whydunit before the local police do. Yes, I know it sounds like the same ole, same ole, but it really is not. This books are somehow fresh, different and enjoyable. They are much like having a plain old glass of milk, then adding chocolate, ice cream, whipped cream and a marchino cherry on the top, so much better than the expected formula. This book is about child sexual abuse, pornography and the murder of the children after"they have been used up." There are many corrupt officals and other bad people. This book, has undetailed sex, some light romance, murder, beat em up violence, not much blood or gore, but some events are cringe worthy, some unique forms of torture, a new use of IKEA stores and supplies and a new character, who is as bad in a good way. This is a stand alone book as are the others in the series, yet there are a few threads left untied, giving hope for more books in this series. This is not chick or rooster lit. It is mystery for all adult readers. I wish there was some humor in these books, but even without a giggle or three, there are near a perfect read. AD
Nathan finds himself around dead bodies again, but this time it involved children which is a hard story line to take but it was still a good story. He finds a new girlfriend and maybe this time they will stay together! I will read the next book too.
Really enjoy this series of books, only wish there were more as I have read them all
