Mitchell Nevin is a master at developing characters, listeners will empathize with, even the bad guys. Nothing is as it seems - listen to find out, who's good, who's bad, who's dead, and who survives. The Cozen Protocol is an intricately woven story, perfect for any crime lover. Take a ride in the front seat with Milwaukee's finest and view the world as you have never seen it before; by walking-a-mile in the shoes of everyday street cops as they carefully balance the ebb-and-flow of justice and politics. Faced with inept leadership, outlaw bikers, gangs, and crooked cops, each day is another unique challenge. Down, but not out, the fine men and women of law enforcement combine their talents and work together to "foil" the bad guys and live to fight crime for another day.
This book hooked me from the opening scene, and was difficult to put down.
In retrospect I wished I had purchased the kindle version of this as well, as there are so many characters and interrelated plots, I found myself wanting to refer to a flow chart. I felt mollified when I did a search for this book on Amazon to find there is a Kindle "Cliff's Notes" type summary of this book available for purchase.
Nevin has a great facility with character AND plot development, while keeping the lingo amount the police characters quite realistic.
George Kuch does an excellent job with the narration, especially helpful with the constantly shifting scenes and characters.
I rarely listen to books twice, but this is one I will probably listen to again -- it's that good.
