Synopsis:A crooked conglomerate makes a move on fictional Newport City by first attempting to incite a war between its existing criminal organizations before taking over with its own "in-house" group. Hired by a major gang leader to avert the war, freelance information broker Kevin recruits his ex-enforcer, ex-con brother Chance, and Kaity, a reporter with a vendetta, to uncover the conspiracy.
This is a suspense novel unlike anything I have read before. The main character is sort of an “unhero” in that he is an information broker to gang leaders and other nefarious people. Through him we see the dark underside of a large city. It was quite eye opening to read how gang leaders do business, carving out their territories. There is lots of foul language and violence in this book but all of it fits the setting, I think. Potential readers should know that there is a graphic scene of an attempted rape, including a great deal of violence. The suspense builds as the plot develops to a surprising end. I recommend this book to readers who like an unusual suspense novel and are not bothered by foul language and a great deal of violence.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
