Publisher's Summary

A former Medal of Valor winner, Minnesota detective Alexander Rupert is now under subpoena by a grand jury on suspicion of corruption. So when he's asked to look into the false identity of a car-accident victim named James Putnam, a man who in fact died 15 years earlier, Rupert sees a potentially big case and an opportunity to regain his respectability.

But the investigation puts him in the path of "the Beast", the nom de guerre of Drago Basta, a cunning veteran of the Balkan wars and a sociopath assassin who has been searching for Putnam for years. Putnam had something that Basta still wants. If Rupert's life was in shambles before, it's now also in danger. Threatened by the Beast and suspecting his wife of cheating, Rupert falls for the seductions of the dead man's former girlfriend. As he feels his life spinning out of control, his steadfast brother and fellow police detective Max may be Rupert's last hope.

Enjoyed the story

This series is not bad. Unfortunately the narrator's voice and attempt at different character voices was painfully off putting for this book. I almost gave up.

Where's Joe

The character of Joe, from the first novel, doesn't appear. The writing, compared to the first novel is less sophisticated almost as if this was an earlier work by the author. The plot is also more straightforward with less of a twist

Good Thriller

The story line was very good. A but was predictable, but some good twists. I disliked the narration. The voices for the females were horrible. Made it hard to develop any feeling for those characters.

Where did this narrator audition? Off-off Broadway?

The story was quite good, but dude reads it like he’s incredulous to all of it. People just don’t talk like that. The constant intonation is GRATING. You might not have a face for radio, but you certainly don’t have a voice for audiobooks.
