Author J.A.Jance created a suspenseful, action-filled novel with many voices heard and allows us to understand and experience the frustration, anguish, and expertise of the many law enforcement agencies that wove together and worked as a unit to bring down the orchestra of these horrific murders and crimes.
Detective Juanita Ochoa is handling the case involving 2 young guys murdered and looking into the links between the mystery of Danielle, and Jack and the attempted murder of Hal and how Munez fits in. There was someone else out for revenge but who and why? With his parents in the hospital, Ramon had to find a place for them to live. Frigg was now filling Ali in about what Stu had him install and her abilities are huge.
When the pieces fall into place and several departments combine detective Amos Anderson, a tough parole officer, a relentless detective, and Ali who would not give up as the final takedown, the deals made and the murder for hire come to a deadly end, once again the author keeps it moving, creates law enforcement that is credible and takedowns right out of Law and Order as Frank Munez and his murder for hire team will shock you as there is no honor among thieves it murderers out for revenge and a monetary score. What is the final fate, Hal? How does Danielle’s story that she told impact someone else? Just how many were a result of their being Collateral Damage? Each person justifies his/her actions and one man’s intent on revenge. Lies, betrayal, the loyalty of a son, the tragedy that some endured, and one Detective named Amos and another named Juanita plus their computer techs and our Frigg proves that teamwork, perseverance and commitment often win out.
