The Lost Sheep by Brandt Dodson

It's a good thing The Lost Sheep is the last Colton Parker mystery. Dodson's quality suddenly takes a turn for the worst in this non-mystery.
When Callie goes missing, Colton goes searching for her. After forcing some information out of the locals (that seems to be his specialty), he finds out that Callie has run away to Las Vegas with her new boyfriend.
This a good adventure, but it isn't really a mystery. Though Dodson throws in a few unexpected twists, such as several key characters dying, the "suspenseful" confrontation at the end really ruins the whole thing. Surely Brandt could have come up with a more complex plot like he has done in the past.
The Colton Parker series should have probably ended several books ago. At least he doesn't have any plans for anymore.
2 stars
