Interesting story

This was an interesting book. The characters were likeable and I appreciated seeing a main character with strong morals. The story centers around a reporter, Cooper Smith, who finds out about a heroin-dealing drug network on the Indian reservations of Minnesota, and what he does to help bring it down. I listened to the Audible audio version of this book narrated by Ward Paxton. While the story was good, it took me a while to get used to the narrator's cadence, which almost made him seem robotic in the narration. He did a good job with character differentiation and didn't use whiny female voices, which I appreciated. Overall, its a good story that is worth checking out if you like crime fiction.

Journalist battles drug ring

The story moves along quickly in the rough world of drug dealing. It wasn't overly violent and the narration is very good.
