Bazza Mackenzie, Pompey’s top criminal, is now beyond reach of DI Joe Faraday. Hungry for power and profile, Bazza decides to stand for Portsmouth North in the general election. And his campaign is taking the city by storm. But politics is an expensive business and so Bazza turns to ex-cop Paul Winter to call in a multi-million pound drug debt. Winter, though, is facing a nightmare of his own and knows his time with Bazza has to end. Enter DS Jimmy Suttle, the young Major Crimes detective once partnered with Winter himself. Bringing Bazza to his knees, he believes, might just be possible.
Three men, Three weeks of hard campaigning. And the darkest reckoning when the final votes are counted.

"Gripping, gritty and utterly authentic." (Irish Independent)
I didn't want to get this book because of what happened at the end of the last one in the series, but then I had to for the very same reason - if that makes sense!
The end was satisfying, but I also feel slightly cheated for some reason and I think that's due to the story line reflecting life rather than bad writing.
As with the previous 'Portsmouth' books, this was a wonderful story, albeit without one of the previous heroes. The complex plot and Tim Pepper's excellent narration kept the excitement going until the end. What shall I do now they are finished? I hear Graham Hurley has come up with another scenario, so I look forward to seeing that on Audible's list.
