About this book

Book Summary

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.

Media Reviews

"The plot is appropriately convoluted. The body count is respectable, and the result is a ripping-good thriller." - Booklist

"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
