I don’t want to say much about this book except “Read It” and give yourself a
chunk of time because you won’t want to put it down.
Wes Raney was an ambitious New
York City Narcotics Detective in the 1980’s. However, Wes was developing a drug
habit of his own whilst working undercover as he tried to catch a sadistic
crime boss. In consequence, he made some bad calls; he lost his career and his
Now Raney is the only homicide
investigator covering a two-hundred-mile stretch of desert in South West New
Mexico. It is 2002, a gruesome murder scene is discovered in an underground
bunker. Was this a drug deal gone bad or something else? Soon Raney is
forced to confront old demons.
Raney’s character is well
developed; he is flawed, hates himself, and is beleaguered by his violent past.
Will Raney find any kind of redemption?
The plot and pace are brilliant
with twists and turns, secrets and lies, surprises here and there. All
the characters are believable.
I wonder if we will see Wes Raney
I hope so.
