Ridley Pearson has written some of the best suspense novels in the library, and The Pied Piper is no exception. The story starts off as a fairly straightforward thriller. Series character Lou Boldt is called in on a case involving several kidnapped children. But we soon realize nothing in the story is straightforward and there are serious complications and implications in these cases that cast many upstanding law enforcement officers in a bad light. Even Boldt, one of the most honest cops you could imagine, comes in for his own temptation.
The Pied Piper has a fast moving plot, but also has intriguing characters who develop as the story progresses. This book is a roller coaster ride from start to finish.
