About the Book

“I might also tell them that you have threatened me with a knife.” “You bastard.” “You may be right. So how do you want to play this game?” This is part of a conversation between the head of the local drug squad and the trusted informant of another police department who appears to be floundering in the changing world of drugs, murder, illegal immigrants, and terrorists. Det. Sgt. Ron O’Neill, after answering a telephone call, is drawn into an enquiry that is career-changing for him.
