This is book number 3 in the Frank Behr series.
A tough, gritty crime novel featuring Frank Behr, a former Indianapolis cop now a PI, caught between his independent moral code and official indifference to a suspicious killing. An exciting, fast-paced read. — Chris Morrow
Tough, gritty, twisting plot-good police procedural, but with complex characters. If you like Barry Eisler, Michael Connelly and Lee Child. — Louise Jones
Detective Frank Behr finds himself neck deep in white collar crime and facing off with cold-blooded killers more terrifying than anything he's faced before.
Bernard "Bernie Cool" Kolodnik is a hard-driving business mogul in the process of making a move into big-time Indiana politics, and it's Frank Behr's job to protect him. When a gunman takes a shot at Kolodnik, Frank does what he does best: saves Kolodnik's life. So why then was he taken off the detail? And why are the usually adept Indianapolis cops making no headway? To discover the truth, Behr navigates a labyrinthine landscape of hardened former Feds, crooked real estate developers, casino magnates, and power seekers feeding on the edge of a dangerous and deadly political scheme.
