Publisher's Summary

Though he's still tormented by his brother's murder and the accident that ended his career, ex-homicide detective Liam Dempsey is trying to move on. His girlfriend and their adopted son are the best things that ever happened to him - and being a police liaison is the next best thing to being back on the force. But when an old friend asks for his help, Liam is thrust into a harrowing investigation that reawakens his darkest personal demons.

A politician has been violently attacked, and his wife is kidnapped for ransom. But as police mobilize to track the victim and trap her abductor, the case takes a chilling turn from extortion to grisly murder. Whoever snatched Valerie Farrow wants blood and money - and they're brutally collecting.

Working with, and against, the police, Liam is forced to dig deep to expose the ugly truth - even if it means digging his own grave in the process.

Great book and awesome narration..



This second book about Liam Dempsey was a little more brutal than the other one. I mean, the other one had Liam’s brother being cut into pieces but this one was just so cruel and bloody in the killing. LOL, I have to wonder about authors’ minds when I read this kind of story. Not that it’ll stop me from reading them.

This was about a young woman who was killed 16 years before but the killer just kept looking into it until the killer found out for sure that it had been murder and not suicide, as the coroner called it and now the kidnapping of her sister. Then the killer killed the 4 men responsible. Two of the killings were killed in a really disgusting ways. And two different killings were totally unnecessary as they had nothing to do with the girl dying 16 years ago. There were twists and turns in this and I was surprised at who the killer turned out to be.

I did like Liam but he wasn’t much of a hero. He was always losing his gun or getting the hell beat out of him (or run over by his own truck) BUT he had a way of solving the puzzles that no one else did, so there was that.

There was only fade-to-black sex and the F-Bomb was used 41 times.

As to the narration: Eric G. Dove was his usual awesome self. Men, women and emotions were nearly perfect.

Dempsey is a treasure

Hart brings us the second I what I hope is a long series although this book does tie it up quite nicely. I'd hate to think this is the end though. Best to read the first in the series for continuity
GREAT!
