Publisher's Summary

LAPD robbery-homicide detective Hayden Glass finds himself in another hot situation when the young prostitute he’s been seeing in San Francisco is kidnapped. His efforts to find and save her put him in direct conflict with a corrupt element of the San Francisco Police Department, the FBI, and the local Russian Mob. Each faction uses Hayden like a pawn, and each has its own reason to take the young woman away. Hayden himself wonders if his motive for pursuing the girl is altruistic or if it’s his sex addiction calling the shots. Speedy plot twists and escalating psychological turmoil bring Hayden’s story to an action-packed conclusion.

Stephen Jay Schwartz spent a number of years as the director of development for film director Wolfgang Petersen. His career includes numerous feature-film writing assignments as well as work for the Discovery Channel.

What the Critics Say

“Schwartz does a fine job of blurring the lines between sexuality and violence, the criminal world and the police world.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Relentless and unflinching, a shocking thriller that dares you to keep reading. Schwartz has created one of the most complex and tortured protagonists I’ve encountered in a long time. A powerful debut.” (Tess Gerritsen)

“Plot twists and turns plus an unusual denouement make Schwartz an author to watch. Mystery fans who enjoy reading about the mean streets of L.A. (à la Robert Crais, Michael Connelly, T. Jefferson Parker) will devour this.” (Library Journal)

    "Skip this BEAT"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A somewhat plausible story. A continuation of BOULEVARD but in a boring, tedious manner.


    What could Stephen Jay Schwartz have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Stopped while Schartz was ahead. This second book offers nothing new and just feels like the previous novel is being BEAT to death. And, who cares?


    What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

    The consistency of a good reading.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No, it didn't.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend that one NOT PURCHASE.
