What the Critics Say

"Mahoney is a genius at transforming the details of the workaday police grind into a spellbinding thriller, and he is in top form here....When the vigilante's identity is finally unveiled, a fast-moving series of shootouts and heart-wrenching decisions make for a spectacular climax." (Publishers Weekly)
"[Mahoney's] intimate knowledge of the drug trade - including its mind-boggling financial structure - and his hands-on grasp of investigative technique mesh well in the eighth installment of this exciting series. (Booklist)
"Christopher Lane's well-paced reading [is] particularly effective in his depiction of know-it-all Detective Cisco Sanchez and his partner, Brian McKenzie" (AudioFile)

    "Enjoyable"

    Not the best read I have had lately, but above average. The pace was brisk and the characters were likable and interesting. The plot kind of lags at the end, but it still kept my interest.

    "Promising, but loses momentum"

    Teases you with a great opening action sequence, but immediately becomes a talky procedural. However, Christopher Lane does an amazing job with the material and his narration is the only reason I finished this one.

    "Underwhelming"

    I wasn't really sure how to rate this one. There's nothing particularly wrong with the book or the narration; I just left it with a feeling of being... disappointed, I suppose.

    It's a police procedural novel, so I wasn't expecting any brilliance in crime solving or convoluted criminal plots a la Christie or Deaver, just the dogged determination of police officers hunting down their prey. And that's what I got. But the reason I chose the book in the first place was because of the description of a moral dilemma in the pursuit of a criminal who actually has sympathetic aims to the police.

    This is a fascinating topic when properly handled but in this case it just sort of bumps along and the climax and ending are a total cop-out. Honestly, the morals of vigilantism are more fully explored in Batman.
