A suspenseful and often edgy read with feet of clay.

Great title, great premise, great plot! Author Swinson's police cred is evident, and the DC streets are richly and convincingly rendered.

Regrettably, though, the narrator's voice is uneven, and at times the dialog is wooden and labored. The love interest never really jumps off the page. But at other times, dialog sparkles, as when protagonist Frank Marr dances verbally with suburban teenage girls.

This is an imperfect book, but worth the read.
