Publisher's Summary

A brutal home invasion shocks Brattleboro's small Asian community, but no one is talking. Undeterred, Joe Gunther digs deeper and discovers a cross-border smuggling route carrying drugs, contraband, and illegal aliens into and out of Canada. Operating below the radar for years, competition between underworld rivals is bringing it into the light with deadly consequences.
International jurisdiction is a complicated matter, and in the pursuit of justice, Gunther will have to collaborate with the FBI, the Border Patrol, and the Mounties.

Just too long

I wanted to love Dark Root as I have the previous books. However, much like Asian crime, this book was so long and convoluted that I lost will to live. I only finished listening with half an ear. Taylorson's narration is excellent, but he seemed to know he was droning on. The only upside was that Gail has gone to law school, and I didn't have to listen to her "insights."
