Reviews from Booklist & PW

Booklist:
“This novel gives off heat. … [with] unique and startling plot twists. But what really recommends the book is the high octane presentation. … [and] the sense of urgency and authenticity, the feeling that this is the real deal, set down by somebody who was there and still hasn’t gotten over it. The SWAT-like assault on the crime house is an impressive set piece.”

Publishers Weekly:
“Putnam’s first novel, a fast-paced tale of idealism and corruption, stars paroled ex-con Bruno Johnson, once a legendary member of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s elite Violent Crimes Team, who fears that it’s only a matter of time before his former colleagues turn on him… [Putnam] wields his archetypes with skill and a sincerity born of long experience in law enforcement.”
