Great book, an exciting cop-thriller! Thorpe has an ear for "coptalk" and really knows how to tell a story and ratchet up the suspense. This is the author of a book titled "Nothing Lasts Forever" which was made into a blockbuster movie many years ago titled "Die Hard" starring Bruce Willis and Bonnie Bedelia.
