A Lou Boldt series book. It is several books into the series so if you are not into this series, you may want to start with an earlier Lou Boldt book. Otherwise, good.

This is the first adult book I have read by Ridley Pearson. It started off slow, with the chapters jumping back and forth between characters. I kept at it and about 1/4 way through the book.....I couldn't put it down. Glad I stuck with it. Now to find more books by Pearson.

I started reading Ridley Pearson's first book by accident but this was one of my greatest finds he is one of best thriller writers
of our times.

The Pied Piper is Ridley Pearson's most ambitious,intriguing, tightly woven story yet...

"A whodunit that elevates the genre...Ridley Pearson may be the most literate and challenging practitioner of mystery fiction at work today."

I got two copies of this one so I'm listing one on PBS. Haven't read it yet, so will give it 3 stars only because I've read other Pearson books I liked.

From back cover:
Who's that knocking at your door? Do you always look? Do you always know? From best-selling suspense writer Ridley Pearson comes a heart-pounding story of deceit and betrayal. Seattle detective Lou Boldt and forensic pathologist Daphne Matthews must break the brilliantly conceived network of abductions that has shattered lives and terrorized communities.
The press is calling him the Pied Piper because infants have disappeared from San Diego to Seattle with only a penny flute left in the crib. With few leads, no witnesses, and all signs pointing to a black market adoption agency, Boldt and Matthews must battle not only the overwhelming odds, but the involvement of federal law enforcement, a news-hungry press, and nervous politicians. The more deeply they probe, the more elusive the truth seems -- evidence is stalled, paperwork misplaced, witnesses overlooked. Why, when so much is at stake?
The Pied Piper is Ridley Pearson's most ambitious, intriguing, tightly-woven story yet.

Coulter's usual convulated story in which Savich and Sherlock once again ride in to save the day.
