Publisher's Summary

A one-man crime wave is shaking the peaceful city of Santa Maria, California, and no place is safe. Kenny Trask, an unpredictable, high-strung, shockingly violent convict, has just escaped from prison and is intent on putting together enough cash to bankroll a new life for himself, his ex-cellmate, and the female defense attorney he believes they must “rescue”. Only one man is willing to stand in the way: Robby Medavoy, a cop who’s been called a hero, whose unorthodox style has fueled the resentment of rival officers and the suspicions of his superiors. With a contract on his life from his department’s SWAT team, Medavoy must put everything on the line to pull Trask in - his reputation, his survival, and, unexpectedly, the woman he comes to love.

Boring, Boring, boring.......

The story was so boring that I tried to skip chapters but it was still boring,. The Narrator had a prescriptive voice and low acting skills!!

Finally a fictional novel that feels very real!

So glad to have had this incredible writer AND Amazing narrator recommended to me by Audible. I accidentally listened to the first book believing it was a true crime story/memoir as I normally read....and never realized until last hour it wasn't! So well written and narrated that I can't stop with the other books!!!

THIS AUTHOR IS GREAT

If you like cops (good or bad) you will love this book. This author is gold. Narrator, John McLain, does a bang up job.
