THE HUNT CLUB, by John Lescroart
What appears to be a simple case widens and grows more and more complex as Hunt's club of employees and volunteers expands and investigates. A love interest (not entirely believable, but I guess Lescroart did his best with it) keeps the hero out there slugging away. And just when you think it's all over...it starts again. Don't start this on a Sunday night, you'll be late for work! I think it's an 4.
