From the gritty streets and crack dens of the District's inner city, to the posh country clubs and gilded offices of the nation's political elite, Sydney, Cassian, and Train must slip deep into a labyrinth of money, power, and deceit to uncover a decades-old conspiracy that could rock the nation.

I am a 65-year-old psychologist, married for 25 years, with two sons who are 25 and 22. I love reviewing the books and the feedback I get.
David Hosp has now written three books (I believe) featuring lawyer Scott Finn, his investigator Tom Koslowski and his assistant lawyer Lissa Krantz. I have loved all three and am looking forward to the next. He gives a spectacular view of Boston, from its gritty side to the Back Bay. He writes terrific dialogue and places his characters in sometimes agonizing danger. Even though you know the good guys will eventually win, the methods he uses to twist and turn you through the plot are manifold and believable. The narrators have been top-notch. Like all great writers of historical fiction, he will leave you asking, "Did that really happen?" A delightful read from open to close.
pros and cons
I have really enjoyed all of David Hosp's other books. This one is terrible by comparison. Boring, cheesy, predictable. Also, this narrator just does not hold a candle to George Guidall.
