Publisher's Summary

A former Medal of Valor winner, Minnesota detective Alexander Rupert is now under subpoena by a grand jury on suspicion of corruption. So when he's asked to look into the false identity of a car-accident victim named James Putnam, a man who in fact died 15 years earlier, Rupert sees a potentially big case and an opportunity to regain his respectability.
But the investigation puts him in the path of "the Beast", the nom de guerre of Drago Basta, a cunning veteran of the Balkan wars and a sociopath assassin who has been searching for Putnam for years. Putnam had something that Basta still wants. If Rupert's life was in shambles before, it's now also in danger. Threatened by the Beast and suspecting his wife of cheating, Rupert falls for the seductions of the dead man's former girlfriend. As he feels his life spinning out of control, his steadfast brother and fellow police detective Max may be Rupert's last hope.

I loved the characters

Once again Allen Eskens lets his characters evolve. Both of the books by Eskens have been among the most engaging and intellectually gratifying books I have read.

Great listen, terrific narrator

It's been awhile since I've listened to a book where I couldn't predict at least some of what was going to happen. I would have liked a different ending but it was still very enjoyable. The kind of book that keeps me sitting in my car. I haven't listened to this author before nor have I heard this narrator. The narrator was terrific, didn't interfere with the book at all.
