He's a good detective... with a bad habit.

Frank Marr may be a decorated former cop and the best private investigator Washington, D.C. has ever known, but the city doesn't know his dirty secret.

A high-functioning drug addict, Frank has devoted his considerable skills to hiding his habit from others. But after accidentally discovering a kidnapped teenage girl in the home of a drug gang, Frank becomes a hero and is thrust into the spotlight.

Reluctantly, he agrees to investigate the disappearance of another girl - possibly connected to the first - all the time knowing that the heightened scrutiny may bring his own secrets to light...

The Second Girl is a raw, real and incredibly gripping thriller from a former DC Major Crimes detective. You won't regret meeting Frank Marr...but his enemies will.

A suspenseful and often edgy read with feet of clay.

Great title, great premise, great plot! Author Swinson's police cred is evident, and the DC streets are richly and convincingly rendered.

Regrettably, though, the narrator's voice is uneven, and at times the dialog is wooden and labored. The love interest never really jumps off the page. But at other times, dialog sparkles, as when protagonist Frank Marr dances verbally with suburban teenage girls.

This is an imperfect book, but worth the read.
