However, Hero’s personal life is also dealt a major blow when his parents are faced with a life or death situation. He is forced to put his personal problems aside when the murderers are revealed and Hero is faced with a tight deadline in which to apprehend them.

It's down to Hero Nelson and his team to find out what has happened. How a man can be brutally murdered and why? The case seems to go off in all directions, with numerous things happening for the team to tackle.
Hero is a great character, one I've grown to like, he can be a little bit, lets say 'stuck in his ways. He loves his family and really is a family man. We see his family life hit problems and you can't help want to help put things right.
Another first class read and Mel's fans will certainly not be disappointed.
Its no secret that I am a huge Mel Comley fan and have to admit I didn't even read the synopsis on this book before starting it. I knew it was from an author I trust and about a character that I enjoy reading about. So for me that's all I needed to know. I certainly wasn't disappointed, in fact I've never been disappointed with any of Mel's books and would happily recommend them for anyone who likes to get lost in a great read.
This book could very well be read as a stand alone, but for me I find it always better to read a series from the beginning, but that is just my personal liking.
