Child of Mine
A teenage girl found murdered. Lorelei Taylor’s autistic son, Simon, is a suspect. But he didn’t even know the girl. Did he? Simon is sixteen, vulnerable, and diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. Lorelei knows her gentle son could never harm another person.
For the past few months, Detective Alex Landon had seen retired US Army Captain Jonathan McDougal as both a sympathetic suspect and a less-than-cooperative informant. But, when a local hate group acquires explosives and the circumstantial evidence indicates McDougal’s potential involvement, their relationship sours and grows distrustful.
