Child Not Found
A Tucker MysteryBook - 2016
For Aloysius Tucker, taking his nine-year-old cousin Maria sledding is all about frozen toes and hot coffee in the warming house. It shouldn't involve chasing after Maria as she's led into a long black car by a stranger in a Bruins jacket. But by the end of the crisp December morning Maria is gone, her mother is dead, and her father--mafia don Sal--has been arrested for murder.
Sensing blood in the water, would-be successors to Sal's criminal empire square off, agreeing on nothing but the idea that Sal's blood relative, Tucker, needs to be eliminated. Searching for Maria through sub-zero days and nights, Tucker persists even as his relentless efforts draw him into a deadly crossfire between every power-hungry crook in Boston.
