Teases you with a great opening action sequence, but immediately becomes a talky procedural. However, Christopher Lane does an amazing job with the material and his narration is the only reason I finished this one.

I wasn't really sure how to rate this one. There's nothing particularly wrong with the book or the narration; I just left it with a feeling of being... disappointed, I suppose.
It's a police procedural novel, so I wasn't expecting any brilliance in crime solving or convoluted criminal plots a la Christie or Deaver, just the dogged determination of police officers hunting down their prey. And that's what I got. But the reason I chose the book in the first place was because of the description of a moral dilemma in the pursuit of a criminal who actually has sympathetic aims to the police.
This is a fascinating topic when properly handled but in this case it just sort of bumps along and the climax and ending are a total cop-out. Honestly, the morals of vigilantism are more fully explored in Batman.
