    A top police investigative unit breaks an illegal gambling operation in the context of rampant police corruption and drug-fueled gangster violence in the city. Lead detective Jeremy Ryder is a physically powerful, quiet and meticulous investigator. His partner Navi Pillay is a small and exceptionally strong Tamil martial arts instructor, and she provides the speed and physical power to complement Ryder's incisive sleuthing abilities.

    Better than the book

    Yes. I liked them both, but the audio is even better.

    This sequel to the action-packed Devil Dealing depicts the ongoing search by detectives Jeremy Ryder and Navi Pillay for the evil gangster Skhura Thabethe, dealer in stolen weapons, drugs and murder. The secondary plot shows the detectives uncovering a link between stolen weapons and the local trade in drugs.

    Thoroughly enjoyable to listen to in the car

    Not really. I suppose it would be better to have three or four people reading, because there are quite a few characters.

    Midnight on a moonlit beach. Six cops execute four thugs after a heinous crime. They are unaware that there is a witness to the executions. Thrilling action explores tactical, ethical, and criminal choices made by officers of the law. A stark image of moral ambiguity underpins their struggle to maintain courageous and precarious control of all-engulfing crime. Plain-dealing cops face scrutiny in an emotional journey through choices made in the day-to-day confrontation with evil.

    The best

    Hard to say. I loved the book so much and now hearing this I love it even more.

    "The woman's cries floated down the passage and bubbled out through the front door in helpless, anguished, tortured spasms. It was a sound that echoed down the ages. The horror of mothers from any species that might ever have lived on the planet. A parent trying to deal with the impossible: the death of her young ones. It was a sound to chill the blood." A notorious killer escapes from prison. Heart-rending scenes show the kinds of trauma faced by victims of crime.

    The dog's the hero

    Outstanding action thriller
