Description

On Brooklyn's treacherous streets, having a conscience can be a dangerous commodity. When Andrew Giobberti, exiled from Homicide to Appeals, suddenly finds himself in demand in the prosecution of the horrific murder of a beloved neighborhood grocer, he cannot know the hornet's nest of lies and double-dealing he will uncover. With the newspapers and the powers-that-be insisting Gio convict the supposed perp at any cost, his capacity for fair play and diligence leads him to a shocking conspiracy that reaches all the way to the top-and in a world founded on corruption and cover-ups, this fine-tuned sense of justice could just cost him his life...

"Still wrestling with personal demons over the accident that caused his daughter's death, Brooklyn ADA Andy Giobberti is called in to prosecute a seemingly straightforward convenience store heist and murder. However, Giobberti's highly developed sense of morality bathes what seems like a black-and-white case in shades of gray. Author Robert Reuland continues his ambivalent love affair with Brooklyn in this follow-up to HOLLOWPOINT. Narrator Jason Collins makes the most of Reuland's edgy writing, handling Giobberti's philosophical angst sometimes with jumpy bravado, sometimes with snarling certainty. While he succinctly reproduces the borough's mean streets, his voicing of secondary crooks and politicos is somewhat less convincing. Nonetheless, Reuland's style and intricate plotting, combined with Collins's intelligent performance, offer hours of excellent listening. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
