From Publishers Weekly:

Martin's sequel to The Mercy Trap should attract more fans to private eye Gil Disbro of Cleveland, Ohio; Disbro is a tough but good-hearted fighter for justice, here on a twisted narrative path leading toward missing professor Alan Gault and his young son, Brandon. The detective meets Alan's sexy sister-in-law, Arlene Hammond, who reveals that a custody battle over Brandon broke out after his mother ostensibly committed suicide. Religious fanatics, the elder Hammonds had disowned their daughters as morally corrupt and declared Alan unfit to bring up his own son. Having hired a kidnapper to spirit away the child, the grandparents keep him a virtual prisoner--but Disbro catches up with them. Alan, however, has already rescued Brandon, leaving the detective to solve crimes tangentially connected with the case: the murder of the abductor enlisted by the Hammonds and another killing as well. This is a gritty, engrossing, unusual mystery.

From Library Journal:

Martin's prose takes a little getting used to, but once he passes the preliminaries, his style begins to sparkle. Twenty-five-year-old teetotaling private investigator Gil Disbro (a break in the growing trend toward older, hard-drinking protagonists), already divorced and an ex-cop, lives in Cleveland with significantly older Helen, who occasionally sends business his way. This time, his search for a missing professor and his son involves him in kidnapping, murder, child abuse, and blackmail. Plenty of descriptive Midwest settings, action, and seedy-to-exciting characters flesh out the plot. A fitting second to The Mercy Trap.
