The Blurb –
It was meant to be a harmless adventure…or so he thought.

What really happened in the woods that day? What dark secrets was the dead woman hiding?
And who, or what, is Chameleon?

My thoughts – What a great read. I haven’t read the other books in the series but this does not pose any problems to getting fully immersed in this story. The main characters gel well together and their back stories are hinted at, through this book so I didn’t feel as there were any gaps.
This book follows a young boy who witnesses a harrowing event, and fails to realise what danger he is in, until he is seen. Now someone knows there is a loose end and they must silence the boy.
Jack Mason wants the case, he is still recovering from his last one, but needs to be back on the job. As the story gets darker, the boy will need more protection than ever.
