Publisher's Summary

From the author of the acclaimed, award-winning debut novel Black Fridays comes a story of murder, greed, and corruption--and the lengths to which one man will go for his family. He approached me in the street--bone thin, gray bearded, holding out a small envelope. “The man said you’d give me five bucks for it.” Inside was a one-word message: "RUN."

Two years in a federal prison has changed Jason Stafford, is still changing him, but one thing it has taught him as a financial investigator is how to detect a lie. He doesn't think Philip Haley is lying. An engineer on the verge of a biofuel breakthrough, Haley has been indicted for insider trading on his own company, and Stafford believes him when he says he’s been set up. Haley does indeed have enemies. He is not a nice man. Doesn't make him a criminal. It does make him dangerous to be around, though. The deeper Stafford investigates, the more secrets he starts to uncover--secrets for which people would kill. And that’s exactly what happens. Soon it is Stafford himself who is under attack and, worse, his family--his fiance, his young son--and he is a fugitive, desperately trying to stay one step ahead of both the killers and the law.

    Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.

    Story
    "Very Good But...."

    Fist off... start this Jason Stafford series at the beginning with "Black Fridays". Stafford's an unusual detective in an unusual business... It's worth watching him grow through this, the third in the series.

    I liked "Long Way Down" both because of Michael Sears plotting, characterizations, and narrative imagination. And David Chandler's powerfully competent to create both a distinctive ensemble cast while acting out the tensions of both character and plot.

    So, why that "But" up there? Because of the torrential tension storm that Sears felt this story needed to bring it to a conclusion. No, not the conclusion itself, but the process started to intrude into the story in the last, oh, 20% of the story. And when I get distracted by the author's contrivances to create tension, I drop out of the moment.

    Still, I'll get the next Jason Stafford novel as soon as its written, hoping that maybe he'll become a tad less inexplicably super in his heroism, and consequent'y more believable as the story explodes into an ending.

    Yeah, I recommend "Long Way Down" but I wish the ending didn't demand that my disbelief get stretched quite such a long way...

    Story
    "Too much saliva!"

    Throughout the entire book, the narrator can be heard swallowing his saliva. Really distracting and very annoying. Why this wasn't edited out is beyond me. Sloppy work.
