Publisher's Summary

Capt. Nora Riter is a cop with a future, assuming her deadbeat husband doesn't mess it up first. He's hocked her jewelry, stolen her gun, and had cocaine delivered to their home. Their marriage is a toxic mess that could end her career - unless Blaze Longo ends it first. On the streets of Red Hook, Blaze is a legend: a merciless loan shark who wields a cleaver like a scalpel and wears a pouch around his neck carrying the severed ears of clients stupid enough not to pay up. Now the ice-cold psychopath has planned a kidnapping scheme that will catapult him into the big time, and it's up to Nora to put him in his place.

Characters won me over on this one...

There were plenty of issues I had with the flow of this book, but in the end, I was so invested in the characters that the story didnt matter. For some odd reason, Leuci introduced several underlying conflicts that never were resolved. Nevertheless, I was riveted by the characters, thus this 4 star overall rating.

Leuci was a NYPD detective for many years and it shows in his work. He knows the politics, police work and crime stories better than most any other author in this genre.
