A former police officer is accused of the abduction and rape of a small girl. A case of "wrong place, wrong time". He is not convicted and moves to a remote area to get on with his life. He strikes up a friendship and partnership with quirky Amanda as detectives. Strange enough he ends up working with the father, of the child he was accused of raping, to try to find the person actually responsible. The characters in this book are great. I found myself so addicted to this book and wanting to find out the outcome. I didn't want to put it down. I read the entire series.
