Title: After She's Gone (DI Matthew Adams #1)
Author: Sheryl Browne
Stars: 4 out of 5
After She's Gone will pull at readers heart strings how does one more on after the loss of a child knowing you could have prevented it?
Sheryl Browne paints a very raw man who feels as if he lost everything and can only find peace inside of a bottle. The story is very much a police procedural story but it also has heart and soul as Matthew and Becky struggle to find their peace after the death of their daughter.
Matthew throws himself into finding the killer his nemesis Patrick Sullivan. Sherly tries hard to make every character come to life and she does it so well that Patrick Sullivan is a broken man who take his angry out on Matthew Adams instead of the real reason he turned himself into a vile and evil man.
Each characters will pull at the readers heart strings as the face pace thriller takes you to edge and brings the readers back finding peace.
After She's Gone is a intense face paced cat and mouse game that will have readers wondering if the cat will eat the mouse in the end.

There’s evil and then there’s Patrick Sullivan. A drug dealer, pimp and murderer, there are no depths to which Patrick would not sink, and Detective Inspector Matthew Adams has found this out in the most devastating way imaginable.
When Patrick’s brother is shot dead in a drug bust gone wrong, the bitter battle between the two men intensifies, and Matthew finds it increasingly difficult to hold the moral high ground. All he wants is to make the pimping scum suffer the way he did … the way Lily did.
But being at war with such a depraved individual means that it’s not just Matthew who’s in danger. Patrick has taken a lot from Matthew, but he hasn’t taken everything – and now he wants everything.
