Summary

Detective Nic Costa finds himself a stranger in a strange land when he's sent to infiltrate the mob in a remote part of southern Italy.

Roman police detective Nic Costa has been sent undercover to Italy's beautiful, remote Calabrian coast to bring in the head of the feared mob, the 'Ndrangheta, who has offered to turn state witness for reasons of his own.

Hoping to reel in the biggest prize the state police have seen in years, the infamous Butcher of Palermo, Costa and his team are aware the stakes are high. But the constant deception is taking its toll. Out of their depth in a lawless part of Italy where they are the outcasts, not the men in the hills, with their shotguns and rough justice, the detectives find themselves pitched as much against one another as against the mob. 

As the tension rises, it's clear the operation is not going to plan. Is Nic Costa getting too close to the enemy for comfort - and is there a traitor among them...?

Finally !

I have been waiting and waiting for the return on Nic Costa and his team! And I am not disappointed. David Hewson has created such lifelike characters, I feel they are old friends. The story is absolutely compelling..I listened hour upon hour....wishing it wouldn't end. Of course, it could never be as enjoyable without the terse but evocative reading by Saul Reichlen.
Mr. Hewson, please don't make us wait so long for another!

Disappointing.

I was looking forward to the latest instalment in the series and had high expectations considering how many years it’s been since the last. Unfortunately, this was the first book in the series I did not enjoy. It draaaaagggged on and was rather predictable.

Nic Costa returns!

After waiting for a long time, David Hewson delivers another great Nic Costa book. Moving the scene to a little-known area of Italy was interesting and revealing. The usual cast gives continuity to the character development, and Saul Reichlin is excellent in his narration. Great job, hope there is more to come.
