*** The Second Girl by David Swinson

The hero of The Second Girl should be a disgraced ex-police officer, but he was allowed to retire quietly instead, and he how uses his investigative skills as a PI with a solid drug habit that he carefully hides from others. After accidentally rescuing a teenager who had been kidnapped by a gang, he is hired by the parents of another — and chaos ensues. The non-hero carries the story, which unfolds seamlessly. The only false note is a would-be romance with his lawyer-partner, but it is only a tiny part of the story. A gripping tale.
