Web London and his FBI Hostage Rescue Team are lured into a trap, caught in a crossfire and slaughtered. He's the only survivor.

One witness is a ten year old boy named Kevin Westbrook. He's the brother of a drug dealer called Big F. After the shooting, Kevin disappears.

Knowing that he's in need of help in dealing with the emotional effects of his friend's deaths, Web goes to psychiatrist, Claire Daniels. As he tells her of his past, we learn of the guilt and anguish he feels about being alive and not able to do more to save his friends.

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.

Well done.
