From domestic war to barroom brawls, grad-student-turned-PI Neal Carey’s got more than studying on his plate.

Neal Carey’s three-year confinement in a Chinese monastery is finally over, but his troubles are just beginning. The elusive financial benefactors who have bought his freedom expect a return on their investment. They want him to find Cody McCall, a two-year-old boy recently abducted by his father in a bitter Hollywood custody battle, a task that will propel Neal from the glittering Hollywood hills to the remote wilds of Nevada.

To find Cody, Neal has to turn outlaw in a land of two-bit casinos and roadside cathouses to infiltrate a vicious white supremacist group spouting hatred and dealing in terror. But the deeper undercover he goes, the deadlier the game becomes. Now Neal must force a showdown with the group’s crazed leader and find Cody before the missing toddler ends up lost in a world of unspeakable evil.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Les Edgerton | 2/8/2012

    " First Winslow novel I've given less than five stars to. There were just some plot points that strained my credulity a bit too much and took me out of the fictive dream. That said, it was still a typical Winslow novel--highly entertaining. Not his best (imo), but I'm definitely not sorry I bought it. "

    " This is the third in the series and I really enjoyed it. Don Winslow has great characters and Neil Carey is a great one. "

    " A good old-fashioned adventure story. Winslow writes with warmth and compassion. Neal Carey's quest for a kidnapped child takes him to Nevada, where he encounters some ornery men. I am always eager to see what Neal will do next. "

    " Considerable but a good adventure story.

    I read this book after reading the Dawn Patrol. I've picked up two other books by the author which I'll read shortly. "
