Publisher's Summary

An FBI agent nabs an armed-and-dangerous drug dealer single-handedly. His reward: an angry reprimand for neglecting to call in for backup.

Welcome to today's FBI, where crime fighting takes a backseat to brown-nosing and backbiting - unless you happen to be Special Agent Mike Devlin. A streetwise veteran of Detroit's downtown war zone, Devlin plays to win - and he plays by his own rules...which is why he's now assigned to the Bureau's version of Siberia, midnight wiretap duty.

But you can't keep a good man down for long, and when Devlin gets wind of a Mafia mole inside the FBI, he springs into action. Recruiting a squad of fellow FBI renegades, he sets out to stop the leak while staying one step ahead of the suits back at the office.

Here is a novel that only an FBI agent could have written: an authentic tour through Detroit's criminal underworld, and a stinging swipe at the Bureau's bureaucratic follies.

Critic Reviews

"Lindsay's riotous style fuels a hard-driving narrative, and his insider knowledge gives the quirky plot twists welcome credibility. He manages to skewer stuffed-shirt bureaucrats while shining the badge of the dedicated agent right up to the perfect ending." (Publishers Weekly)

At the top of the genre

This is a book that raises the bar for this type of literature. The narration is great, the story fast and insightful and the characters are full and interesting. I would not hesitate to recommend this book it is one of the best of its type I have ever read.

best ever

I am a retired truck driver and this is one of my top 3 favorite books of all time. I listen to it again recently for the umpteenth time and I absolutely love it and I am devastated that the author has passed away because I would have given anything to speak with him
