Good plot with plenty of twists. Some of the twists seemed improbable but it didn’t seem to spoil the read

Clay Wolfe, former Boston PD Detective, has returned to his hometown Port Essex ,Maine, to watch over his aging grandfather. He starts his own private detective agency and an assignment to find who sold the drugs that killed his client’s granddaughter opens the proverbial can of worms that puts the lives of all those that Clay knows and cares for at risk. Little does he know that this job will lead him to question all he knows about his hometown. Although a bit slow at first, this story develops into a “can’t put it down thriller.” Hopefully more books featuring Clay Wolfe will be forthcoming. #WolfeTrap #NetGalley

When Clay Wolfe returns to his home town of Port Essex to hang out his private detective shingle, he’s looking for respite from his former job as a Boston detective. Figuring his small town will allow him to watch over his elderly father and get him away from the crimes of the city, Wolfe acquires an office manager and an old friend who was a Navy SEAL. When a young woman approaches him to find out who provided the drugs that killed her baby, he takes on the case, not realizing how complicated and deadly it will become. His little group of friends join in a David and Goliath fight. What interested me about Cost’s book is that the middle-which is so difficult to write and keep readers interested–is quite a page-turner. This is where a mystery often lags, but not this one. It’s quite a story with twists and turns that will keep you reading until the end.
