Come and see what all the fuss is about and find your next hero!
“Flory delivers a strong and complex crime thriller speckled with sharp action, salty dialog, and deep character development. Trust Misplaced moves at a steady pace, and weaves subplots into a complex tapestry that is sure to engross fans of Connelly, Patterson, and Coben.”
Christopher Flory’s first detective crime novel, Trust Misplaced, is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat with its fast-moving action and richly conceived characters. Most memorable is the hero, Paul Dodge, a parole officer, who is part of the local Sex Crimes Task Force. As Dodge digs into a particularly twisted and difficult case, he finds lies and corruption among the top powerbrokers. With his own career on the line for breaking the rules, Dodge’s career, as well as his life, are at stake. Worse yet, he doesn’t know who to trust.
Flory himself served as a parole officer and describes how parole officers work with the police to solve crimes. Aside from the book’s thrills, chills, and narrow escapes, I learned about this important aspect of law enforcement. Highly recommended, especially for lovers of police procedurals.
