In an Indianapolis underground parking structure, Frank Behr is on an executive protection detail for Bernard "Bernie Cool" Kolodnik, a hard-driving business mogul on the verge of making a move into big-time Indiana politics. Behr is working for an exclusive investigation company, and it's an uncomfortable fit, both literally and philosophically. The uneasy stability is quickly rocked by a burst of automatic weapons fire as an attempt is made on the prominent client, and Behr manages to protect him and repel the attackers. Though Behr is celebrated for his heroism, he can't help but investigate what happened in that garage - and why the Indianapolis cops seem to be burying the incident.

"Despite the violence around him, Levien's laconic hero remains oddly unemotional." - Publishers Weekly
"Thriller fans should definitely investigate." - Library Journal
"A professional-grade actioner that offers compelling evidence for Rickie's dictum: 'When pros lock up, everyone gets hurt.'" - Kirkus Reviews
