Detective Paul Winter goes undercover to investigate a drug kingpin. Meanwhile, Detective Joe Faraday, Winter's superior, is assigned to investigate the murder of a property developer and the assassination of a government minister by two motorcyclists. Their investigations eventually coalesce, with Winter’s role and motivation at issue. While the story is clever and at times riveting, it’s a bit long and contains some questionable subplots. Narrator Tim Pepper's adeptness with dialogue helps the novel flow smoothly. Pepper is particularly effective at evoking the tension between Winter and Faraday as the men recognize that their investigations are leading to conclusions neither of them is comfortable with.
