Layover by David Bell

It all started during a layover at the airport.  He meets a pretty lady and wants to get to know her better but she won't tell him anything and keeps sneaking off.  He's supposed to be going on to a job but his dad is there at the meeting and he wants to find his elusive girl...

Berkley and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you),  It will be published July 2nd.

As he follows her and finds her here and there, he knows she's in trouble but she won't tell him what kind.  When he finally gets her to talk, he thinks it's the theft of a ring that has caused all the trouble.  It's more than that...

This starts as two different stories:  a police investigation and his search for his mysterious girl.  As you keep reading, the two stories merge into one.

This story is suspenseful and full of tension as the brother of the missing man gets involved.  He's a violent man. 

It's not until the end that you get the full story and it's complex and sad.  There were reasons for what happened but it doesn't make it better.

This author always holds my attention when I start reading his books.  He writes well.
