Publisher's Summary

Tim Rackley, a deputy U.S. marshal, watches helplessly as his daughter's killer walks free on a legal technicality. He is suddenly forced to explore his own deadly options, a quest that leads him into the welcoming fold of "The Commission". A vigilante group made up of people like himself, relentless streetwise operators who have each lost a loved one to violent crime, the Commission confronts the failings of a system that sets predators loose to hunt again, cleaning up society's "mistakes" covertly, efficiently, and permanently. But Rackley soon discovers that playing God is a fearsome task. When his new secret life starts coming unwound at an alarming speed, he is suddenly caught in the most terrifying struggle he has ever faced, a desperate battle to save everything left that's worth fighting for.


What the Critics Say

"Hurwitz's deft descriptions of Tim's methods of disappearing, breaking-and-entering, and stealing identities are convincing, and his fast-paced plotting will keep readers riveted." (Publishers Weekly)

loss of a child/vigilante justice

The brutal murder of their 7 year old daughter leads to the father's resignation of his career as a Deputy Marshall. The father then joins a group who claims to play "judge, jury, and executioner" when the justice system fails to do so. Only, he finds out more

It's good, but not his best (the others will blow you away). His novels get better as he writes. I like the Evan Smoak serious 5x more- those are take your breathe away good.

The narrator has FANTASTIC voices= it's shocking how different some of the voices/accents/annunciations are. very good narrator.

If you like 007/CIA type of action... you'll like this.
