Frank Behr is on an executive protection detail of Bernard Kolodnik, a hard-driving business mogul on the verge of making a move into big-time politics. Behr is working for the Caro Group, an uneasy fit both philosophically and literally. Working for someone else rubs him the wrong way - but with his girlfriend nine months pregnant, Behr is doing what he has to. An attempt is made on the client, and Behr manages to protect him and repel the attackers, getting them both to safety. Behr is celebrated for his heroism and moved to a different assignment, but he can't help but investigate what happened in that garage - and why the cops are either making no headway, or burying the incident.

"A professional-grade actioner...compelling..." (Kirkus Reviews)
I enjoy the characters. Narration and CHOPPY story-eech.
To much "extra" gory violence. The narration was abysmal. I dont know if Boehmer has an accent that he is trying to cover up, but it was difficult to listen to. He also has a very odd cadence. At times I had no idea which character was speaking. Also, this book throws music in every now and then. ILOVE Frank and Susan but could not wait until this book was over.
A real disappointment
I downloaded the first in this series and thought the author had promise. The clues seemed to fall on the PI's hands, but the story kept me interested. The second book was a little less successful. Still, I downloaded the third, thinking the author IS a good writer -- almost. Well, instead of getting better the experience got worse. The author seems to have fallen in love with his macho character and I simply couldn't take one more description of his intricate workouts (yeah, yeah, we get it -- he's fit). I also couldn't understand why his much-younger, pregnant girlfriend didn't make a run for it while she still could -- "Susan, this guy is a self-centered jerk. Get out of there!" Sorry, but there are no redeeming qualities here....I tried to make myself finish it, but simply couldn't. The experience was made worse by the reader (the first two were read by Scott Brick). Mr. Boehmer is "just" a reader -- he doesn't add anything to the story...and this story could have used some help. I guess I am done with Mr. Levien.
may seem like a small complaint but two of the primary characters were had similar names; Dreyer and Decker. it was similar it was to the point where, at least hearing it on via audio, it confused me very much for quite a while! otherwise as in the first two books by this author wonderful novel uplifting story!
