A violent robber is loose in River City. Meet the cops that must take him down. Stefan Kopriva, a young hotshot. Katie MacLeod, a woman in what is still mostly a man’s world. Karl Winter, about to retire but with one more good bust left in him. And Thomas Chisolm, a former Green Beret who knows how dangerous a man like the Scarface Robber can be. These are the patrol officers of River City - that mythical thin blue line between society and anarchy.
They must stop the robber, all the while juggling divorces, love affairs, internal politics, a hostile media, vengeful gang members and a civilian population that isn’t always understanding - or even grateful.
A story that makes cops into real people, not just robotic law enforcement. Lives & loves that hit home, from those who handle a tough job.
Well-written & believable characters with great emotion & subplots.
Recommended for those who enjoy a crime thriller with heart.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Even the slightest chapter of something other than droning on and on about police procedures.
What could Frank Zafiro have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Shortened the book by about 10 or 20 chapters.
How could the performance have been better?
The performance was actually the only acceptable part of the entire 8 hours. I think it's the only reason I didn't give it up during the 4th hour.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Complete disappointment. I kept waiting for something remotely exciting to happen and it never did.
Any additional comments?
Only that I'm glad I only paid $1.99 and not the full price. I may or may not read another Zafiro book, I'll have to wait and see the storyline before deciding.
Very readable. Plenty of action following the lives of policemen on and off duty fighting crime in the neighborhood.
