Good but there were a couple of headscratchers

* Spoilers*
The storyline really had me hooked. The ending was just preposterous. Why would a law enforcement officer turn his back on someone he is suspicious of and whom he just caught in a lie? As a result, he gets waylaid and evidence is stolen. It was so unbelievable. And then, there is the ending. If the victim kills a pedaphile in self defense, why go on the lam? The deceased's activities are easily proven since he was filming them and there is also the DNA testing done on his child/grandchild. The reason given for running away: that the child would be taken away and placed in the foster care system. This was just ludicrous. It's too bad. The plot was pretty good but it was cheapened by writing an ending that just looked like an excuse to write Book #2. I'll stop at Book #1.
