When a veteran cop tries to arrest baseball's home run king, one of them ends up on trial and the other one ends up dead. A routine stakeout is almost over when Dave Mackno decides to pursue a speeding Porsche. It's a decision that will have deadly consequences. That's because the Porsche is being driven by Remo Centrella, baseball's home run king, who is half-drunk and at the tail-end of a steroid cycle that makes him think he's bulletproof.
The story grabbed from the beginning, it drew me in and I did not want to stop listening.
Atlanta, Detective Dave Mackno is on the third night of a tedious stakeout in the city. A Porsche is driven erratically through the street, the driver is restraining a woman.
The gripping story begins! The driver of the Porsche is a baseball star, he is aggressive, he and Dave get into a fight which culminates in Dave shooting the star.
The plot flies along and is full of surprising twists and turns through the murky world of politics, racism and the legal system. This book lacked the tedium of the never ending legal intricacies and long winded speechifying that, to me, signifies a legal thriller.
I really enjoyed the ending, which, in itself held a surprise.
The narration by Steven Jay Cohen was excellent, he acts the role of each character in such a way that the listener is easily able to identify each one. His voice has a pleasing rhythm and pace which added to my enjoyment of the story.
This book was gifted to me by the narrator in return for an honest and timely review
