Out of work. Out of money. Out of options. After a streak of bad luck, army veteran Dallas Rowen is due for a break, and he finds it in a single sentence uttered by a stranger: “I need your help.” Mistaken for a private investigator and desperate for cash, Dallas is enticed by the promise of a paycheck and apprehensively takes on the role of detective.
The death of demolition derby driver Jerry Grady has flooded the news. However, they've omitted one piece of information: it wasn't the impact of the crash that killed him — it was the bullet to his head.
Dallas sets out on the increasingly dangerous investigation, determined to make good on his vow to uncover the truth. As he closes in on the killer, the duplicitous detective quickly realizes time is running our in the battle for justice. The crosshairs of a murderer are turning toward him.
With his trademark gripping narrative, master of suspense Clair Poulson delivers a fast-paced, carefully plotted thriller that will leave audiences breathless.

3.5 stars really.
I liked the characters, especially the old lady. Dallas is believable and relatable as a down on his luck ex-soldier. The women in his life are likable and flawed, as are many people. The Author manages to keep the villains identity ambiguous until the end. The demolition derby aspects make for an interesting setting for portions of the book. I also enjoyed the mild humor of the story.
This book suffers from the same weakness that all books of this genre suffer from. That is to say that problems manage to solve themselves in very convenient ways. Also, these books always have to have a budding romance of some type and this book manages to have two. ( this might be a good thing for some. Just not for me. )
In all I enjoyed this book. It’s a light and entertaining read. The sense of humor is nice. And the characters are likable.
