In Colorado, a pop star and her entourage are brutally murdered. At first the lead assassin, ex-Navy SEAL Cyril Landry, has no qualms about the killings—it’s just another job for The Shop, a shadowy organization that has hired him to execute people across the country. But Landry begins to wonder why these people had to die, transforming from mercenary to hunter as he delves into the depths of The Shop. Thousands of miles away, in a seedy motel in Florida, a local police chief is found shot to death. As Detective Jolie Burke works to find out why, the tangled threads of evidence lead to a disturbing place: the heart of the powerful Haddox clan, led by US Attorney General Franklin Haddox. As Jolie pursues the truth, she quickly discovers that Haddox will do anything to protect his country’s ugly secrets—even kill. Landry’s quest to uncover The Shop’s motives throws him into the dark currents of Jolie’s investigation, and they find themselves working as an unlikely duo: a cop and a killer, joining forces to expose a shocking conspiracy that ascends to the highest offices in the land.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 2/8/2014

    " Book held my interest to the end. People who don't like a sympathetic killer might not like it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David | 1/27/2014

    " Ehh. Pretty run of the mill crime drama thriller. easy, thoughtless read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol Luce | 1/19/2014

    " So many thrillers nowadays seem to have the same premise, with nothing new to set it apart from the pack. Not so with J Carson Black's THE SHOP. Even the title hints at intrigue and something out of the ordinary. I've read all of this author's novels, and each one demonstrates her skill for the craft by way of extensive research, character development, prose that sings, and thought-provoking plots that stay with you long after you read The End. Black is truly a master at writing police procedurals and high-concept novels. They just get better and better. Once you've sampled one, you won't be able to stop there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 12/23/2013

    " I liked this book. I'd read many criticisms that it was disjointed & inconclusive & didn't develop characters well, but I didn't find it so. Lots of mystery, action, suspense & it took you inside the characters' heads. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 12/15/2013

    " Great book - super quick read and full of suspense. Not so much twists and turns (fairly predictable) but overall pretty good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Delmer | 2/17/2013

    " It was an ok book. I wanted to find out what happened to the main characters, so I couldn't put it down. The premise of the story just didn't seem to be plausible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Welch | 1/12/2013
