The critically acclaimed and multi award-nominated first book in the Jackson Donne series, a riveting, gritty thriller from one of the brightest new crime writers working today.
A hit and run. Simple as that. And suddenly harmless old Gerry Figuroa is lying dead on the asphalt. New Jersey cop turned private investigator Jackson Donne sure as hell doesn't want to investigate his drinking buddy's death, but he's made a promise that leaves him no choice. And before long, he's drawing uncomfortably close to a murderer.
Meanwhile, an apparently routine divorce case takes a dangerous turn, and sinister connections to Gerry's death start to emerge. Just when it seems things can't get any worse, Donne learns that a bitter old enemy is mixed up in the whole mess. Bill Martin, his Narcotics Department ex-partner, has secrets to expose that could reopen the still-aching wounds of Donne's past. Permanently.
Donne would like nothing better than to crawl back into a bottle and forget he ever heard Gerry Figuroa's name, but it's too late for that. Now he's in way too deep, tangled up in a plot whose tendrils reach far into his town's past - and his own.

"Ok story with flaws"
Performance a bit over dramatized. (Wasn't really rooting for Jackson. Old partner was just an asshole, art was just an asshole. I didn't care if we didn't find "guy in bars killer, Rex was a characture) Story a little shaky, (um, someone tearing up ur license doesn't invalidate the license, if an unofficial deal is made and one side reneged, the deal isn't valid). imperfect editing (points made again that were already made. Biggest one old partner called him kid the whole book then in the middle Jackson respond to a "kid" with a "he hadn't called me kid since.." ). Listened to it to see how it ended. Glad it was a daily deal. Not credit worthy so many better detective stories out there.
