Truit Hickman is a small-time crook doing life in California's notoriously brutal Corcoran State Prison for the murder of his mother. He admitted to the crime, but now Hickman claims his confession was coerced by the cops. A beautiful Internal Affairs detective, Secada Scout Llevar, asks Shane Scully to help investigate, and he agrees after learning the original homicide detective was Brian Devine, a ruthless cop with whom Scully has a bad history.

What begins as a routine review quickly turns into something much more deadly. The case is abruptly shut down by an LAPD deputy chief, and Shane begins to suspect that, for unknown reasons, Hickman really may have been framed by the police. But some things, once started, cannot be stopped, and the investigation spirals dangerously out of control, implicating a violent Hispanic gang, a millionaire power broker, and the front-runner in the Los Angeles mayoral race.

Meanwhile, Shane and Alexa struggle to save their marriage, which has come perilously close to disintegration since Alexa's near-fatal shooting in White Sister - just as Shane finds himself attracted to his new partner. Could the answer to their marital troubles be tied to the case he's investigating?

In Cannell's heart-pounding thriller, Shane is tried in ways he has never been, risking his family, his job, and his life. Download and start listening now!

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce | 1/12/2014

    " I stayed up late to finish this. The Shane Scully mysteries are action packed fun reads. Cannell does a great job of plot and character development. As a former resident of LA I often recognize areas he describes. His ability to bring you into the action taking place only adds to the drama. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori Whitwam | 1/12/2014

    " "Rebel police guys who always do the right thing even if it gets them in trouble, but they always win in the end" books aren't my usual thing, Connolly's "Harry Bosch" books notwithstanding, but this was a good one. Interesting and unique plot pertaining to the crimes and the group of people involved. Good element of his relationship with his wife, and another investigator, too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim Mack | 11/4/2013

    " Predictable mass-market mystery detective novel. The suspense and "whodunit" kept me reading, and then I had to know how they'd get the "bad guys". Not one I'd recommend, and definitely not one I'd keep on my shelf, but an enjoyable mindless time waster. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janis | 10/21/2013

    " Edgy book. Lots of grit, violence and mayhem. Still, I enjoyed it. "

    " Good mystery with lots of action. Shane Scully looks into a case of a young man in prison at the urging of an attractive colleague nicknamed Scouth. To further complicate matters his wife Alexa is still not herself after her being shot in the head. Good escapist fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 1/6/2013

    " This author is the creator of a lot of TV shows I like. This series is about a cop in the LA area. He's kind of a rogue, struggling against the bureaucracy. I like that. The plot is okay. "

    " A great story and this time Shane gets hurt very badly and is risking his own life to save an inmate who was wrongly accused and set-up for a crime. Another awesome story in this series. "

    " A little too much angst about last years injury, but they got the bad guys anyway. "

    " A wonderful continuation of Shane and Alexa Scully. Great characters, exciting action, surprising twists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debi | 6/24/2011

    " Cannell does his usual great job with plotting. His character's aren't not well rounded and fleshed out, however if you want a great plot driven read with lots of twists. This is it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Merry | 7/15/2009

    " Informative and entertaining, this Shane Scully mystery was a nice change of pace with Shane's wife, Alexa, in the role of risk-taker (a role usually attributed to Scully). Well-plotted in typical Cannell fashion, but there was just something missing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 4/25/2009

    " A little too much angst about last years injury, but they got the bad guys anyway. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randy | 2/23/2009

    " It's Cannell, Scully.... there's no need to say more. Cannell is a top drawer writer. It's not Shakespeare but then, it's not mean't to be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Davehk | 1/14/2009

    " This guy is my New Favorite Author -for how long we'll see.

    If you like Robert Crais, Jack Reacher or Bernie the burglarizing book dealer, you'll like this author too.

    Set in LA - it's VERY much like Elvis's character from M. Crais. "

    " Good mystery with lots of action. Shane Scully looks into a case of a young man in prison at the urging of an attractive colleague nicknamed Scouth. To further complicate matters his wife Alexa is still not herself after her being shot in the head. Good escapist fun. "
