An ex-Army detective with PTSD. A beautiful psychologist with an unspeakable past. Can they defeat their demons and free a runaway girl from the hands of a psychopath?


When small-town detective Eli Colt receives a frantic call from his estranged sister-in-law, he can’t ignore her plea for help. His teenage niece, Tara, has vanished, lured into the treacherous world of trafficking by a cunning New Orleans pimp.


Determined to save Tara from an unbearable fate, Eli reluctantly seeks the assistance of an unexpected source—Lindsey Crenshaw, a clinical psychologist whose own past suffered the terrors of child prostitution.


Where danger lurks and the past refuses to remain buried, Eli and Lindsey must rely on each other to bring Tara home. Their journey through the seedy underbelly of the French Quarter and a remote fishing channel tests their tenacity, often pushing them beyond their emotional and physical resolve.


As Eli and Lindsey get closer to save Tara, Tara’s life is about to meet a perilous end. Can Eli and Lindsey defeat a crazed cult-leader that seeks to claim Tara as his own?

If you like Robert Galbraith’s Cormoran Strike, Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch, or Stephen James’ Patrick Bowers Files, you’ll soar through the pages of Will Marler’s first installment of the Eli Colt series.
