Following the lead of Boston crime-thriller writers like Dennis Lehane and Chuck Hogan, New York Times bestselling author and radio sensation, Howie Carr, delivers a hard-hitting tale of survival, betrayal, deceit, and murder... in other words, a fictional odyssey through the last thirty years of crime in Boston. Jack Reilly, a dodgy ex-Boston cop, is trying to make ends meet as a private investigator. When a client is killed, execution style, Reilly finds himself in a whole world of pain. Someone wants him dead-but why? To find out, Reilly must weed through thirty years of duplicity, corruption, and killing... a web of politicians dirtier than mobsters and criminals nobler than senators. He needs to uncover the dangerous truth behind the bribery, blood, and backdoor deals that define the highest levels of both organized crime and State House politics-before it's too late.

"Howie Carr, a well-known talk show host and BOSTON HERALD columnist, pits ex-cop Jack Reilly against utterly corrupt local officials and an utterly corrupt FBI agent. This is a throwback to the 1950s noir genre--life is cheap, but the payoffs can be great. Peter Berkrot does very well articulating a cynical but honorable (in his own way) private eye. He voices the characters as they're presented, one by one: tired, tough, profane, arrogant, na•ve, ambitious, even idealistic. Most, but not all, are carriers of vast experience and vast contempt. The Boston milieu is recognizable to anyone who's been there. D.R.W. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
