Crossfire by Jon Keys #mm #review @PridePublishing


 Murder, kidnapping and a disappearance. Trooper Rick Anthis could use a break. But he hopes it isn’t too late in coming.

Rick Anthis, a forty-five-year-old veteran of the Colorado State Police and his husband, Gabriel Thorkelson, a deputy sheriff in a nearby county, enjoy the peace of their suburban Boulder home, but the neighborhood’s tranquility is shattered by three rapid-fire gunshots. The pair’s quick reaction allows Rick to witness the abduction of his eight-year-old buddy, Jacob, by his father.

In their quest to find the boy, the clues are sparse and time is of the essence since Jacob is diabetic, a condition Gabriel is far too familiar with. A search of the father’s apartment yields nothing more than an old hiking map that narrows the search down to a few hundred square miles. Rick and his CSI team are on the hunt, but with every bit of progress they make, they are thwarted, especially when Gabriel turns up missing.

Reader Advisory: This book contains gun violence and an instance of domestic abuse.

This was a quick read and was extremely busy.  I liked it alot but it really seemed to be more about the two officers and their relationship then about Jacob.  It’s a good story just not what I expected from the blurb. When domestic violence is involved there are no winners.  This story glosses over the difficulties that were apparent with the kidnapping and diabetics with little insulin to regulate blood sugar.

A good story for someone who is not like me that picks everything apart.  However it was entertaining and engaging.
