Publisher's Summary

The facts: A lonely woman was murdered by her disturbed coworker. The police have investigated. The case is closed. But facts are not truth.A routine investigation of an open-and-shut case is just what PI Ray Dudgeon needs to recover from the physical and emotional consequences of confronting the Chicago Outfit - until "routine" spirals out of control. The victim was no quiet, unassuming, unlucky single woman; she lived a double life in the shadowy realm of covert intelligence...and she died for the truth.Suddenly, Ray's ensnared in a conspiracy of darkness that weaves its way through the very fabric of the nation, and in grave danger of becoming collateral damage in America's war on terror. And his greatest enemy may be himself.

Trigger City

I just finished listening to trigger city and I thought it was great! The hero is a down to earth big city type that is wonderfully read by Mr. Barrett. If you like Elvis Cole, Joe Pike or Wambaugh's characters you will love Trigger City

Entertaining All the Way Through

Some books take a while to build up your interest. Some never get to that point. The last one I listened to, I had to give up on after a few hours - rare for me.

It was nice that this one was entertaining from start to finish. Joe Barrett was a new refreshing voice for me - you can get tired of hearing the same great voice over so many adventures by different authors.

I enjoyed the action, mystery, political subtext, and the ending. I can't figure out why this book is only showing as a 3.8. The ending may have something to do with it. Good doesn't always triumph over evil - but can sometimes do just enough to keep a little of it at bay.

This is a good introduction to the colorful, imperfect detective. Ray Dudgeon and the backdrop of Chicago makes this a ripping good yarn.
