What the Critics Say

"Mahoney is a genius at transforming the details of the workaday police grind into a spellbinding thriller, and he is in top form here....When the vigilante's identity is finally unveiled, a fast-moving series of shootouts and heart-wrenching decisions make for a spectacular climax." (Publishers Weekly)
"[Mahoney's] intimate knowledge of the drug trade - including its mind-boggling financial structure - and his hands-on grasp of investigative technique mesh well in the eighth installment of this exciting series. (Booklist)
"Christopher Lane's well-paced reading [is] particularly effective in his depiction of know-it-all Detective Cisco Sanchez and his partner, Brian McKenzie" (AudioFile)

Underwhelming

I wasn't really sure how to rate this one. There's nothing particularly wrong with the book or the narration; I just left it with a feeling of being... disappointed, I suppose.

It's a police procedural novel, so I wasn't expecting any brilliance in crime solving or convoluted criminal plots a la Christie or Deaver, just the dogged determination of police officers hunting down their prey. And that's what I got. But the reason I chose the book in the first place was because of the description of a moral dilemma in the pursuit of a criminal who actually has sympathetic aims to the police.

This is a fascinating topic when properly handled but in this case it just sort of bumps along and the climax and ending are a total cop-out. Honestly, the morals of vigilantism are more fully explored in Batman.
