When Bean describes his distraught client, Daniel clues in that it is not Natalie, but the foster child who lived next door during his youth, Sophie.
Now, Bean sees that he ’ s been played and must try to keep Jesse safe while locating Sophie before she gets her ands on the prize she has been seeking for years.
Using his tracking skills, Bean leads the investigation down the rabbit hole to piece together who Sophie Evers might be and how she ’ s get to fix her crosshairs on Daniel Hodge.
Paired against the likes of Sophie Evers, who is a complex character in her own right, the tal offers an interesting flavour.
The dozen of secondary characters inject some humour at times, as well as the needed depth of law enforcement to make the story the thriller it seeks to be.
It might have been that the ‘ false impression ’ of Sophie Evers appears so early to Jim Bean or that the chase was slow to develop and became less about the thrill and more about how to gather mundane information, but this story seemed too diluted to really capture me.
