Publisher's Summary

When a senator's daughter is found dead in a Boston alleyway, former FBI agent Nick Lawrence is called into action. A powerful new drug has hit the streets of Massachusetts, and overdoses are skyrocketing to epidemic proportions.

Senator Buzz Litchfield’s daughter is the latest opioid death, and he wants justice. Law enforcement is being told to take the gloves off; to come down hard on the rampant drug rings that have plagued the area.

Nick Lawrence and the Valhalla Group are tasked with taking down the distribution network, and they must partner with Boston’s elite Tactical Narcotics Team to get the job done. But just as they’re about to make a bust, things go south. 

And Nick realizes that in the war on drugs, corruption is everywhere. And nothing is what it seems...

About the author: Brian Shea has served as both a military officer and law enforcement detective. His authentic crime fiction novels have been enjoyed by countless fans around the world. His books are recommended for those who enjoy Michael Connolly’s Harry Bosch, David Baldacci’s John Puller, or James Patterson’s Alex Cross.

Enjoyed the book but NOT the narrator!!

I've listened to all of the Nick Lawrence books & really enjoyed them but I struggled to finish this one due to the narrator!! I feel like it's a big mistake for an author to change narrators with a series.

Needs a better reader

I love Brian Shea novels and I love the Nick Lawrence series even more. This reader Corey M Snow made it almost impossible to finish the book. I’m not done yet. We’ll see if I can finish it.

Great story! Not great narrating.

I have very much liked the Nick Lawrence novels! And, in the others I have listened to, the narrator was great. This guy was very boring. His articulation was odd. It was hard to listen to. I did love the story, however!

Too much minutiae

I had to fast forward through a lot of this book. It is filled with information that is not germane to the story. It was a waste of a credit

Exciting but Predictable Climax

I didn’t like the way the heroes completely ignore the legal rights of the bad guys. I hope that’s not how our justice system really works

what a waste

This was terrible. I guess it was a close of sorts to the Nick Lawrence series, but no comparison to the others. I was SO disappointed; I kept waiting for some action similar to the other books. but it never happened.

Not Shakespeare ... but entertaining

Predictable but entertaining to listen to while mowing the lawn. The Nick Lawrence series could use better narrators.

Great series!

Awesome series. Will read Brian’s other books as well.

I have one complaint with audible, why change the narrator on the last book. They were very good but why change it on the 6th book of a series.

Murder

I enjoyed listening to Corey Snow.

Another great story. A great listen. Stand alone story, but carries on from Killing List.
