The fourth Atticus Kodiak novel, this one offers a narrative twist: the first and final thirds are told by Kodiak’s lover, the PI Bridgett Logan. We learn that she was a junkie, and will always feel the addiction’s affects. Nevertheless, she goes undercover to help a friend, putting herself in jeopardy both from violent criminals and the lure of the drug. It is at this point that Kodiak takes over, finding Bridgett and helping her get clean. Despite a couple of credulity-straining moments (such as Logan’s being forced to wear a wire and elicit a confession from the drug kingpin), this is taut and gritty drama; amoral characters adrift in a brutal world make for much more interesting reading than supervillains (Smoker, Scent of Evil.)
