Description-
  • In the world of cops, drive-by killings don't rank high on the popularity charts. They're usually random, and barring credible witnesses, they largely go unsolved. So when Father Robert O'Brien, a popular Washington priest with a high public profile, is murdered in a drive-by shooting, D.C. police aren't beating down doors to get the case.

    Homicide detectives Frank Kearney and José Phelps have been members of the force for twenty-five years, partners from the start. They're smart cops - smart enough to know they've been played for patsies when the O'Brien murder lands in their laps. This is payback time for two cops who've been a little too brash, a little too independent.

    But what appears to be a motiveless drive-by in a city with one of the nation's highest homicide rates soon turns into a dirtier, far more complex case involving corrupt politicians, self-serving media, warring drug lords, millions of dollars in questionable cash - and more murder. As Frank and José dig deeper, fending off the police bureaucracy and meddling politicos, it becomes increasingly clear that this case might cost them more than their careers. It might cost them their lives.
About the Author-
  • Before turning to crime fiction, Robert Andrews was a Green Beret, a CIA operative, and an aide to a senior U.S. senator. He has lived in Washington, D.C. for many years, and his intimate knowledge of the city, its people and its politics permeates this new series.
Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine A beloved priest killed in a drive-by shooting is found to have gay classified ads and a half-million dollars in cash in his closet. Two seasoned detectives will win or lose their careers, and maybe their lives, trying to untangle the case. Setting the scene immediately and convincingly, David Daoust brings a straightforward attitude to his down-and-dirty presentation of the story. His gritty performance suits the text, but his characterizations slide into one another and sometimes disappear altogether. The performance, and the story, unfold almost relentlessly, tape after tape. Daoust's enthusiasm carries the performance, barely. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine
