This is the first of Cannell's audiobooks to be sold in unabridged form, and it makes a strong case for unabridged-only versions. This listener discarded an abridged Cannell audio a couple of years ago as being too vague and choppy. In Cannell's latest a rogue cop, who kills his former partner in a justifiable shooting and is being wrong-fully prosecuted by Internal Affairs, stumbles onto a scheme so corrupt it involves top officials and even the mayor. There is a lot of action and excitement in this audio, and events happen quickly. If a scene were cut, the offering would lose impact. Robert Lawrence does justice to the quick changes and alters his voice and tempo appropriately. Perhaps the author/publisher and Lawrence will consider unabridged releases of all Cannell's works.
