The Final Tipping Point
Detective Parker Havenot never felt vulnerable as a lone defender of justice. He could handle the bad guys himself. But when he adopts three children and becomes a family man, his life becomes more complicated — especially when Alex Prohl, a convicted murderer set on revenge, is released after only five years in prison. This story of vengeance takes a dramatic turn when Havenot’s teenage son goes missing while on a boating excursion. Suddenly the hunter and the hunted switch roles, and another murder hangs in the balance.
Will the detective overcome his emotional involvement and think clearly enough to save the boy, or will Alex Prohl once again get away with murder?
