Major Crimes Unit detective Tom Wade secretly worked with the Feds to nail seven of his fellow cops for corruption…turning him into a pariah in the police department. So he’s exiled to patrol a beat in King City’s deadliest neighborhood… with no back-up, no resources, and no hope of survival.

Now Wade fights to tame the lawless, poverty-stricken wasteland…while investigating a string of brutal murders of young women. It’s a case that takes him from the squalor of the inner-city to the manicured enclaves of the privileged, revealing the sordid and deadly ways the two worlds are intertwined…making his enemies even more determined to crush him.

But for Tom Wade, backing down is never an option...even if it will cost him his life. It’s one reason why bestselling author Janet Evanovich calls Wade “an unforgettable and deeply compelling character in the most original crime novel to come along in years." Download and start listening now!

    " Deserves two and a half stars, but not a shot at three stars thus it receives two stars. "

    " Very shallow, with very dumb political commentary. "

    " The exposition can be a little clunky at times, but Goldberg's decades of experience as a TV writer shines through in the whip-smart dialogue. This is the most exciting franchise I've read from him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan | 11/15/2012

    " This was on kindles deal of the day so I bought it on a lark. The first few chapters the story was seeming a bit cliche. The cliche quickly fell and what was left was an entertaining easy to read crime novel. I was pleasantly surprised and would recommend this book for any crime novel fans. "

    " Enjoyed this book very much. It was a well-written, fun read. The main character was a cross between Jack Reacher, Jesse Stone and Joe Pike. I have long been a fan of Lee Goldberg's Monk series and I hope that he will write more book reaching Tom Wade. "
