Charged with misconduct in a high-profile solicitation of murder case, Scully is forced to resign from the LAPD or face criminal prosecution. His wife Alexa leaves him, seeking a divorce for his alleged dalliance with the accused in the case, a well-known Hollywood actress. His son, Chooch, horrified by these events, won't speak to him.

In order to make a living, Scully seeks employment where he can: the Haven Park, California PD. Haven Park is a small, incorporated city near downtown LA, populated largely by illegal immigrants. The department is known for its corruption, in effect the Mayor's personal goon squad and collection agency. As Shane gets involved, he learns that things are rarely what they seem.

Relentlessly harassed by an over-zealous FBI agent, the beautiful Ophelia Love, and under the constant, sometimes violent, extremely paranoid scrutiny of his new comrades-at-arms, Shane finds that Alex may be the only one who can get him out of this new mess alive. But is she willing to? Download and start listening now!

    " A very quick escapist read. Shane Scully is booted off the LAPD and his wife Alexa is divorcing him because of an affair with a starlet and his son Chooch isn't speaking too him. The only job he can find is with the Haven Park PD which is corrupt and will take any bad cop. "

    " This is the first Stephen J Cannell book I have ever read. It was OK as police thrillers go. Defintely had a lot of action. Not as much a page turner as I am used to, but I am beginning another of his books and will weigh in after I complete it! "
