Clay Wolfe is a former Boston homicide detective who has left the police department to return home to Maine to care for his elderly grandfather and open a private detective agency. Haunted by being orphaned at an early age, and jaded by the corruption of the big city, Clay is happy to hit pause and investigate minor crimes. When he is hired to find out who sold the drugs that killed a six-month-old baby girl, he has no idea of the evil that he is going to uncover in the underbelly of his hometown.
I have previously read all of the Mainely series that Matt has written and really enjoyed them. So couldn’t wait to read his new series. This is book one and it already hit me hard, I didn’t want to put the book down. It is nitty and gritty and set in a small town in Maine, I have been there before and loved it, so could imagine it more. There are lots of characters, Clay is the main character who was a homicide detective but left it to look after his grandfather and to also open up a private detective agency. We see his first case come in where he has to help a desperate grandmother find out who gave her daughter drugs and there is a baby involved. The drugs world is a dangerous place, can Clay help her before he gets himself caught up into it all? There are a mixture of characters some good and some bad. I love any book that is about being a private detective it really interests me and you don’t see many books written about it. There are some shocking twists that I didn’t see coming. I loved the beginning, middle and end and really look forward to the next book.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
