White riot (a Joe Donovan thriller)
By Martyn Waites
Imagine your young son was kidnapped from a department store while under your care. Imagine further that you’ve dedicated your now-tattered life to finding the boy, leaving behind your journalistic career to become a high-tech private investigator. And now you’ve discovered where your son is living; you check him out from a distance at his new home, but you need to get close to confirm the ID. Finally, imagine that, instead of then knocking on that door, calling in the police, or otherwise immediately doing everything in your power to effect a reunion, you place the lead on a back burner to pursue another case.
