"Victoria Key, an African-American activist, and her children are confronted by a gunman, who kills her daughter and critically wounds her son. Dan Reles, Austin's only Jewish detective, begins the investigation and is joined by James Torbett, the city's only African-American detective. The unlikely team pursues the gunman while Reles also follows a drug case involving rich kids and comas. Of course, the cases are interconnected. Tom Stechschulte portrays Reles with a swagger in his voice that matches his cockiness and gangster roots. Peter Jay Fernandez takes on the other characters with interesting accents and phrasing. Some of the scenes in this complex plot are graphic, especially those involving drugs. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
