Publisher's Summary

Detective James Wolf earned the nickname Lone Wolf from his inability to work with a partner. He's a hard cop who doesn't mind bending the rules to the breaking point to make a case, which is why Internal Affairs is digging in his backyard, looking for buried bones. People are starting to wonder which side of the law the Lone Wolf really hunts for. With his career hanging by a thread, he needs a major show of good faith to stay employed and out of prison. That's when he gets the call.

From the moment he arrives at the crime scene, Detective Wolf knows he's in over his head. He's a narcotics detective called in to consult on a homicide, but this is no ordinary homicide - a priest was butchered in his own church, the body left behind with a promise of more to follow.

The only lead is the killer's calling card: a black lotus flower. Detective Wolf now has the opportunity to wipe his service record clean, in exchange for tracking and stopping the Black Lotus before the next victim is claimed.

Accepting this assignment was Wolf's attempt to get Internal Affairs off his back. But when his hunt for the Black Lotus leads him to a cold case from his past, it becomes personal.

I wish it was longer

I really enjoyed the story, as the Black Lotus is my favorite character in the "Animal" series. I just really wish the story was much longer! It definitely could have been extended a bit more, but some people like a short story. I hope there is more to come for the Black Lotus.

Eyes everywhere

Was really interesting it, I got the feel of urban sci-fi instead of urban mystery b/c of the way The Black Lotus was potrayed.

The lotus

Would you consider the audio edition of Black Lotus to be better than the print version?

Do not have the written version; enjoy the way Cary Hite narrates.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

the way of the plot was outline left you wishing for more; hence you listened longer.

Have you listened to any of Cary Hite’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Cary Hite's is one of the best performer because he makes every character distinguish and original.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The past; redemption
