I liked it. These are nice books to listen to while doing something else. I think the way he explains everything at the end rather then me trying to figure out what it all meant after the bad guy/s are captured. He ties it all together.
Copp is hired temporarily as Captain of the Police dept to find out why one of the cops were killed and if the whole dept is on the take. Meanwhile more bodies are piling up.
