Homicide sergeant Matthew Payne is used to murder, but lately there's been an awful lot of it in Philadelphia. A gangland shooting in a popular tourist location leaves two dead and many others injured, most of them innocent bystanders; a motel room blows up, killing two and severely injuring two more; and the body of a headless Latina turns up in the Schuylkill River. Everybody assumes the deaths are not related, but Payne can't shake the hunch that there's something more to it -- and that hunch leads his thoughts far from the City of Brotherly Love, to the Texas-Mexico border, in the person of a long, lean Texas Ranger who's come to Philadelphia tracking a particularly nasty murderer with Mexican cartel connections. His gang is trafficking in guns and drugs and human lives, and they don't care how many of the latter they waste to sell the former -- after all, to them lives are cheap. With the body count rising, the odd couple of the Philadelphia cop and the Texas lawman race to find the gang and make them pay for it... unless the cartel manages to find them first.

Crime fiction is not my typical cup of tea. I wanted to try something different, but I can't say I would recommend this particular book.

Since I am a little familiar with Philadelphia and the Main Line suburbs, I enjoyed the references to it. It was somewhat obvious that the audio reader was NOT familiar with the area. Listeners should note, most people from the are do not pronounce Schuylkill the way he does.

Gotta say I found the drug-dealing bad guy the most interesting character. At least, I thought he was the least predictable. I found the police bulletin format cool at first, then just too repetitive.

Writing is similar to Tom Clancy. The authors really seem to like the technical aspects of police work.
