Maddog is a tough as hardtack, brutally violent, and self-righteous character who considers himself judge, jury, and executioner. Murdock's techniques and attitude are sometimes gory, over the top, and just plain repulsive. But that's the appeal. You'll want to follow him to the very end of each of his violent adventures. The time is 1969, the place is New York City, and in these concrete canyons, everybody has got an angle. Frankie Fortuna, the greatest crooner of four decades, calls Mike Murdock in to help get back his kidnapped granddaughter. Full of suspense, the chapters take you through twists and turns that keep you riveted. Murdock is hard boiled, not always on the "up & up" and isn't bashful about hurting people. His Colt .45 semi-automatic is always tucked in his shoulder holster, ready for action. He can do, and does, things that police can't. You will find it difficult to stop listening before you finish this sequel.
