FBI official, Percy Bates meets with undercover operative, Randall Cove. Cove had given the information about the building that was being raided. He suggests taht one group is controlling the Oxycontin flow from rural areas into the cities in the East Coast.
I enjoyed this book and feel that Web London is one of the author's better protagonists. He's easy to sympathise with, compassionate and dedicated. The interaction between Web and Calire Daniels was well done and had me wishing for more.
The author also provided a number of well timed plot twists that caught me unaware.
