Original Sin by Brandt Dodson

Colton Parker is a detective going through a mid-life crisis. He has just been fired from the FBI for "unfair treatment of criminals", so he decides to open up a detective practice and take on cases. His first case is a man who has been accused of killing his aunt. He claims he didn't do it, but he has no remorse for her death, even though he says she was his favorite aunt. Colton detects something fishy about the case and decides to look into it. What he finds was something no one expected.
His family life is suffering, namely his teenage daughter. Colton doesn't have a very good relationship with her because she always spent time with her mother, who is now dead.
Probably the best thing about Original Sin is that Colton isn't the typical perfect male lead with a troubled past. He makes multiple mistakes, including reiterating his "unfair" treatment of criminals to get information.
Original Sin is a good mystery and a good start to this series.
4 stars
