But this is not a simple case of a runaway girl. In fact, nothing in Amanda’s life has been simple: brought up by the world’s worst mother, neglected throughout her childhood, she has nonetheless blossomed into a formidably intelligent young woman - a young woman so bright that she can seemingly out-think and out-manoeuvre anyone…. For Patrick, the case leads him down Boston’s darkest, most dangerous streets - and into a world of shocking secrets that will threaten not only Amanda’s life, but also his own and that of his partner, Angie Gennaro.

Listless and mundane
As mystery novels go, this was a pretty plodding and unchallenging 'read'. The detective involved is tired and jaded, but so are most detectives, and the way the narrator sighs through the novel, it just becomes a listless and monotonous adventure into the slightly unknown. There are few surprises and you're seldom kept guessing.
FYI I haven't read the earlier books in the series, and I don't intend to, now :)
