My Review

I really enjoyed this book from the moment I began reading it!  Debut author Jude Hardin has made a great impression on me with Pocket-47.  A great cast of characters inhabit this fast moving crime thriller.  Florida Private Investigator Nicholas Colt specializes in missing persons and runaways.  He is also a former famous musician whose wife and infant daughter along with the members of his band died in a plane crash twenty years ago.  The memories of all of them continue to haunt him to this day.  While investigating the disappearance of teenager Brittany Ryan he discovers new information about the plane crash.  This novel has plenty of twists and turns and it was hard to put down!

Excellent debut crime thriller from author Jude Hardin.  I'm looking forward to many more!
