Crooked cops, professional assassins, and high-level conspiracies with millions of dollars at stake drive this heart-thumping thriller set in New York City. Det. James Wolf (aka Lone Wolf), one of the NYPD’s most successful narcotics officers, never plays by the rules. His unorthodox and often dangerous practices and proclivity for working alone have mostly gone unpunished—until now. When a well-respected priest is slaughtered and hung at the altar “like a side of beef in a butcher’s freezer,” Wolf’s mentor, Captain Marx, calls him in to investigate off the record in exchange for the expunging of his messy professional record. Confused as to why the captain would call in a narcotics detective to work a homicide case, Wolf soon finds that there’s much more to the mystery than his superior has let on. K’wan (Welfare Wifeys) does a masterful job of keeping readers on their toes right up to the very last page.
