Summary

In Colorado, a pop star and her entourage are brutally murdered. At first the lead assassin, ex-Navy SEAL Cyril Landry, has no qualms about the killings - it’s just another job for The Shop, a shadowy organization that has hired him to execute people across the country. But Landry begins to wonder why these people had to die, transforming from mercenary to hunter as he delves into the depths of The Shop.

Thousands of miles away, in a seedy motel in Florida, a local police chief is found shot to death. As Detective Jolie Burke works to find out why, the tangled threads of evidence lead to a disturbing place: the heart of the powerful Haddox clan, led by US Attorney General Franklin Haddox. As Jolie pursues the truth, she quickly discovers that Haddox will do anything to protect his country’s ugly secrets - even kill.

Landry’s quest to uncover The Shop’s motives throws him into the dark currents of Jolie’s investigation, and they find themselves working as an unlikely duo: a cop and a killer, joining forces to expose a shocking conspiracy that ascends to the highest offices in the land.

Bit of a struggle

I gave up on this one. My wife made it through and said the story was good, but I couldn't follow the story at all. It's not complicated, I just find the reader incredibly bland. That said, I generally listen to audiobooks when I'm driving so I can't give 100% attention, but it's not great that I made it 2/3 the way through and can't give even basic details of characters or story. Maybe it's me as her voice is very clear and my wife said the story was good.
