THE BLUE EDGE OF MIDNIGHT (Former Cop-Florida-Cont) – G
King, Jonathon – 1st book
Dutton, 2002- Hardcover
Max Freeman, while a policeman in Philadelphia, killed a young boy in a self-defense shootout. Now retired, Max has moved to a shack in the Everglades. When he finds a child's body, it takes him back to the shooting. But other young children have recently, and still are disappearing and Max is being set up as a suspect.
The character of Max is interesting, but unrelentingly depressed and not as fleshed out as I'd have liked. However, King does a wonderful job describing the Everglades and creating a sense of suspense. I would possibly read more of this series. This was a good read, perfect for an airplane or a Sunday afternoon.
