Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

In bestseller Cannell's implausible ninth Shane Scully crime thriller (after Three Shirt Deal), Scully is unceremoniously dismissed from the LAPD after striking a plea bargain to avoid prosecution for blackmailing a movie actress, Tiffany Roberts, who was seeking a hit man to off her unsavory husband. Outraged at reports that Scully slept with Roberts, Scully's wife, who's chief of detectives, throws him out. Eventually, the ex-cop lands an entry-level job in Haven Park, a city known for "the most corrupt police department in California." Early on, a plot twist casts Scully's disgrace in a new light, but it might have packed more of a punch had it not been so telegraphed. The stakes rise after the detective's new colleagues on the Haven Park police force recruit him to hobble the political aspirations of a reform candidate for mayor. Unfortunately, this effort lacks the humor and realism that marked the author's acclaimed TV creations, such as The Rockford Files and Wiseguy. Author tour. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
