Description

Meet Roy Ballard, freelance videographer with a knack for catching insurance cheats. He's working a routine case, complete with hours of tedious surveillance, when he sees something that shakes him to the core. There, with the subject, is a little blond girl wearing a pink top and denim shorts—the same outfit worn by Tracy Turner, a six-year-old abducted the day before. When the police are skeptical of Ballard's report—and with his history, who can blame them?—it's the beginning of the most important case of his life.  

Edgar and Shamus Award finalist Ben Rehder's novels have made best-of-the-year lists in Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Kirkus Reviews, and Field & Stream. Reviews for Ben Rehder's novels:

“Murderously funny.” 
—Chicago Tribune

“Another of Rehder’s relentlessly twisted tales. Outrageous fun.” 
—Kirkus Reviews

“Wickedly funny.” 
—Dallas Morning News

“The odd cast of characters and bizarre plots and subplots make for a rollicking good read.” 
—Houston Chronicle

“Rehder has made the leap from writing skillful comic pleasantries to pulverizing satire.”
— Austin American-Statesman 

“Rehder writes with an assured hand and a knowing tip of the wide-brimmed cowboy hat to the ways and wiles of the characters that people his distinctly Texan landscape."

    A super read, no padding chapters out with unnecessary detail, fast moving with some great witty remarks along the way.

    A very enjoyable read. I enjoyed the banter and one liners. A pleasant change from the high body count books we see so often.

    Thoroughly enjoyed, loved the style in which the book was written, very different and refreshing. Really appealed to my sense of humour and love of suspense. Was blown away by the twist! Great read and would recommend.

    The lead character, Roy Ballard has a razor sharp wit that reminded me of M.A.S.H.'s Hawkeye Pierce with his quick one liners. Style-wise, the writing is an easy read, the story line quick paced and un-predictable. Jump in this fast flowing river and let yourself be taken down the rapids, you will enjoy the exhilarating experience.
  • Loved it!
