Kane is primarily known for romances, but this title is the second in a series of suspense novels. The debut volume, The Girl Who Disappeared Twice, introduced a team of experts who work inside and outside the boundaries of the law. The business, Forensic Instincts, includes a former Navy SEAL, ex-FBI agents, a psychic, and a bloodhound. Listeners would benefit from approaching the series in order, but there's enough backstory to fill in many of the blanks.
Narrator James Colby does an excellent job of portraying many different male and female characters. The plot, which involves finding a missing father who may be the best chance of a medical donor for his dying infant, is engaging, but the story's pacing is slow until almost the very end.
Verdict: Purchase as demand warrants for thriller and suspense collections.

The man she loved is gone forever.
The child she lives for could be next.
Each day is a struggle for Amanda Gleason's newborn son as he battles a rare immune deficiency. Justin's best chance for a cure lies with his father, who was brutally murdered before Amanda even realized she carried his child.
Or was he?
One emailed photo changes everything, planting a seed of doubt that Amanda latches on to for dear life: a recent photo of a man who looks exactly like Paul. Could Justin's father be alive? The mother in her is desperate to find out. But tracking down a ghost when every second counts is not for amateurs.
Forensic Instincts is the one team up for the challenge.
A behaviorist. A former navy SEAL. A techno-wizard. An intuitive. A retired FBI agent. A human-scent-evidence dog. Together, they achieve the impossible, pushing ethical and legal boundaries whenever the ends justify
