Synopsis

"A complex, entertaining thriller," "with a crackerjack cast, pitch-perfect dialogue...and action scene posed exquisitely between menace and chaos." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) (named to Kirkus Reviews Best Books of 2013)

Charlie Beckham is a rising star among federal prosecutors until, on the morning of the most important court day of his career, a deranged homeless man turns Charlie's life upside down with a single word. He calls Charlie by a secret nickname known by only one other person in the world--Charlie's brother Jake, who went missing thirteen years ago. Charlie has a hundred questions but the homeless man disappears before Charlie can ask a single one.

So begins Charlie's search for answers, and for his brother, a search that leads him down Boston's darkest streets, into its blackest alleys, and, finally, into its criminal underworld. But if Charlie wants answers he'll have to get them from some of the most feared and ruthless people in the city.

Author's note: This book contains some adult language and violence.

After a slow start, the story really romps along with some good twists right to the end. I will definitely look for more books by James Hankins.

An intensely gripping tale from the beginning with enough twists and turns to duplicate a dozen rides on the longest roller coaster! Love, loyalty, devotion and betrayal mingle amongst those both innocent and corrupt. Heroes emerge from unlikely places and always just in time!

My first book by this author and definitely not the last. A true page turner! If you like Dean Koontz, Michael Connelly or Michael Robotham you will love this book.

Great read, and story telling.
June 10th, 2015
I really enjoyed this book, it had suspense, great back story and the writing was excellent. Only one criticism at times it was wordy, more words to explain a situation can sometimes be boring. Overall I will keep and re read in a few years..

Great story. Fast moving story with great plot twists. Main character gains your sympathy. Some language which was not necessary.

Not bad.

Surprisingly this was a good read for such a cheap book! A little unrealistic, but not annoyingly so. Kept me interested and wanting to read to the end.

Excellent
March 17th, 2015
This is an excellent thriller - a definite roller-coaster ride emotionally and a relentless narrative drive.,. The protagonist, initially a bit of a cipher, develops as the story unfolds and is supported by a mix of well-drawn characters. The ending is satisfying and while there are some uncomfortable moments there is also some humour. It's not often that I find a book that grips my attention so completely that I can truthfully say that it is unputdownable!
