Sarah Broadhurst's view...

We meet PI Frank Behr of City of the Sun (excellent) again with linking cases that resolve some of Behr’s personal problems. At its centre is a mafia-like dysfunctional family, a vicious bunch brilliantly portrayed. This is indeed an author worth investing in, his writing is tight, tense, filmatic and very good indeed.

Comparison: Harlan Coben, Michael Connelly, Robert Crais.

It is crime fiction at its finest CHRISTOPHER REICH David Levien has placed himself among the best writers in the field ROBERT CRAIS
