Following the murder of his ex-wife, Kelly, former Navy SEAL Tom Hawkins returns to Shilo, New Hampshire, to raise his teenage daughter. Tom hopes to heal the rift between them by coaching her high school soccer team. Life is slowly shaping up to normal. But normal doesn't last long.
As Helpless, Daniel Palmer's electrifying new thriller, begins, Shilo's police sergeant informs Tom that he's the chief suspect in Kelly's death. Then an anonymous blogger alleges that Coach Hawkins is sleeping with one of his players. To prove his innocence, Tom must unravel a tangle of lies about his past. For deep amid the secrets he's been keeping—from a troubled tour of duty to the reason for Kelly's death—is the truth someone will kill to protect.

I ordered this book thinking it was written by Michael Palmer. When it arrived, and I saw my mistake, I was disappointed. Then I started reading it, and I really got interested. Now I have ordered his first book. I was glad to see he has another book available.
This was an "okay" read. I'm used to Harlen Coben, Michael Connelly, Stephen White, Jonathan Kellerman, John Lescroart & others. Plamer just does not match up. I kept waiting for something big to happen. The same plot line was repeated over and over. And the CIA agent falling for the protagonist BEFORE the case was closed was lame.Also, I just finished King's Under The Dome & that was a hard act to follow, so mabye I'm being to harsh, but I wouldn't recommend this book.
This fast paced book deals with a man who finds himself set up with information placed on his computer. While most of us use the internet every day to help us in our lives, there are those out there who use it for evil. this book helps bring some of that to light without being preachy.
Just finished this book and found it very engrossing, dealing with the use of the internet to thoroughly discredit an innocent person. Internet use is part of life but the evils of internet use can be astounding. A good read, didn't want to put it down.
