Wolfe Trap by Matthew Langdon Cost
When a former homicide detective comes home to a small town in Maine, he thought his days of fighting crime and investigating what the dregs of the earth can do to others. Clay Wolfe never thought his peaceful existence would be shattered by one woman’s request to find the monster ultimately responsible for the death of her infant granddaughter. Little did he know, even in a small town, evil thrives in the dark and the menace is growing, a menace that could get him killed.
Matthew Langdon Cost’s latest series bursts onto the reading scene with high action suspense, a touch of raw humanity and a twisted plot that will have readers unable to put this tale down!
WOLFE TRAP has moments of darkness, genuine characters that are far from perfect and once it gets its claws into you, even the best detectives will fail to easily discover where they are headed on that path to the finish. Easy to read, with moments of rapidfire action, a heinous crime that already has the perpetrator and goes far beyond in unveiling “the rest of the story!” Will Clay make that giant leap into discovering who the greatest monster is and how far his reach goes?
Definitely a hidden gem on the horizon!
