Price of Justice by Alan Behr

Price of Justice is a crime thriller about two people dealing with personal loss, each from a different perspective: a widowed police detective vows to be a father and mother figure to his young daughter while solving a series of related murders, and a female police crime analyst with a dark secret and a mission: vengeance.
                                        Drawn together by their tragic backgrounds, the two team up to hunt down a killer and a group of lowlife criminals linked together by a mysterious figure known as the CEO.
                                        At the same time, two corrupt police commanders do everything in their power to slow the detective’s investigation and end his career. Meanwhile, the analyst’s secret threatens to derail both her life and the investigation.
                                       When the detective’s daughter is abducted by the killer and the analyst is taken hostage, the detective is faced with the ethical dilemma of his life, forcing him to rethink the value of playing by the rules.
                                       Blending mystery, action and just a hint of romance, Price of Justice highlights the intricacies of human emotion and family bonds. It explores themes that include: the role of revenge and vigilantism in today's                                       society and whether these acts are ever truly justified, the challenges of balancing work demands with family needs, and the power of second chances.
