A sins-of-the-father themed thriller that kept me guessing about the good guys as much as the bad. The psychological complexity just kept building with every page, almost past the point of credibility, and I'm still a little unnerved by the ending. It left me wondering (and worried) about what's coming up next.

Detective Cooper Devereaux was called off a suspension to help find a missing 7 yr old boy. He’s a good detective who bends the rules to get the job done. His Lt. knows this and always tries to cover his back. When he arrives in his Lt.’s office he finds that he’s partnered with someone who he doesn’t seem to trust. He’s not quite sure why he’s stuck with her. She has a story of her own that’s pretty interesting.

He’ll stop at nothing to find this missing child, his tactics while trying to solve this case have landed him in hot water again. He’s also battling some old demons that have been brought to the forefront during this case.

I loved this book, it was very fast paced and the many sub-plots kept my interest through the whole book, Mr. Grant did a wonderful job creating this new detective. If you love this genre as much as I do then this is a series you don’t want to miss.

I would like to thank Ballantine Books and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this e-galley for my honest review. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345540751, Hardcover)

For fans of Craig Johnson and James Lee Burke—False Positive follows up the powerful punch of Andrew Grant’s novel RUN with a staggering second dose of thrills and suspense that is just as smart, atmospheric, and soul-searing.
Alabama detective Cooper Devereaux makes no apologies for his luxe lifestyle or the way he does his job. Most cops haven’t lived the kind of life he has—starting out as an orphan, raised by a grizzled cop savior—and most don’t use his kind of high-risk tactics. But he may have met his match in fellow detective Jan Loflin, who’s fresh off a long undercover stint in Vice when they’re partnered on a case that will test them both beyond their direst nightmares.
A seven-year-old boy has disappeared from his home in the Birmingham suburbs. But the more Devereaux digs into the missing child’s background, the more he discovers about his own, eventually shaking loose a series of harrowing truths—about bloodlines, mass murder, obsession, and what two damaged detectives have in common with the innocent victim they’re so desperate to save. This twisty page-turner—the debut of the Detective Cooper Devereaux series—hurtles at a mile a minute through an action-packed search for a missing child, culminating in an ending that no reader will see coming.

"It's a desperate race against the clock. Detective Demonbruen and his temporary partner, Jan Loflin, seek a missing six-year-old foster child. Demonbruen, himself a survivor of the foster system, is haunted by his own brutal childhood and the death of his father. He labors under a cloud of suspicion, determined to find the missing boy before it's too late. But are his motives really pure? His record is a minefield of red flags and question marks: how is a Birmingham cop able to afford a Porsche, a penthouse, and a summer cabin? Why does he have so much success with the petty criminals who form his network of confidential informants? And is there a legitimate explanation for the multiple excessive-force complaints on his jacket?"--… (more)
