I can't say enough good things about this book. It is a top notch crime thriller novel that stands with the best of its genre. Jack Davis is an FBI agent who is newly divorced and suffering from a rare movement disorder that causes him to violently shake at the worst times. During
the investigation of a mass murder in a drug infested neighborhood, Davis is at odds with his agency. Nevertheless, he doggedly pursues justice using his own leads and his own intuition. This is a book that captures your attention from page one and never lets go. I give this one the highest possible recommendation.
