Every city has organized crime. But only River City has a Russian gangster like Valeriy. He’s meticulous, cunning, and willing to sacrifice anything - and anyone - to see his conquest through. In Val’s way are the men and women of the River City Police Department, including rookie B. J. Carson. She’s trying to fill the shoes of a legend while the pressures of patrol and her own past catch up to her. She and her colleagues must unite and work together with a former River City cop turned FBI agent to face down the single biggest organized crime threat River City has ever seen.
In this audiobook, Frank Zafiro explores what honor and courage mean on both sides of the law, weaving a complex and engrossing story of crime, justice, and relationships. There are plotters and detectives, usurpers and leaders. Plans within plans. And in the end the price of victory and justice can both be high…and every man has to die.
I grew up in a law enforcement family in Spokane (River City). The author's portrayal of the officers involved in his stories is very good. I enjoy the emphasis on the officers rather than the crime(s). The narrator is also very good -- when reading in English. His attempts at doing foreign accents are pathetic. There must be some way around this while keeping the same narrator--perhaps the nationality of the foreign characters could be told but no attempt made to do their dialogue in accents? At any rate, I will continue to buy and listen to the books about River City by this author because of his insight and portrayal of the human beings who are willing to protect and serve us.
