Summary

DC Paul Winter has gone undercover in an attempt to infiltrate the inner circle of the city's premier drug lord Bazza McKenzie. Adrift in a world of easy money and brutally hard-won respect, Winter appears to be in his element...worryingly so. But headquarters' concerns are soon supplanted by two high-profile Portsmouth murders. In the first, a visiting property developer is shot dead. Next, a government minister is assassinated by two motorcyclists. DI Faraday is deeply involved in both enquiries and becomes slowly aware of a web of circumstantial evidence with profound implications for Paul Winter. The relationship between the two men has never been easy. But now the time has come to bury their differences.

Get hooked

Its just a shame that Audible have not got more of the Joe Fraraday series to download. If you like your modern dective thrillers to have a gritty realism, a supurb cast of colourful characters and a good story line to keep you hooked then look no futher a really enjoyable listen. If you like Rebus, Morse, Frost then you will be pleased with another addition to the modern detective. The narrator Tim Pepper is perfect for creating the ambience and has a wide range of voices that make the whole experience a treat.

Fairly boring

Too long, slow, and boring unfortunately. Not up to usual standard. Narrator good but overall, delivery and story somnambulant.
