Unlike most of Hosp's books, this one doesn't feature Scott Finn and his colleagues -- in fact lawyers play no real part in the story at all. This is a straightforward crime story, with the main protagonists being a pair of cops, the criminals, the evil people who hire them, their victims and (as usual) the politicians who get in the way of solving the crimes.
I also missed the local color of Boston that pervades the Scott Finn stories, this one being set in DC.
Nevertheless, apart from a lack of legal shenanigans, this is a typical David Hosp story, complete with a trail of dead bodies and a couple of hair-raising close calls.
A quick read and good entertainment, but I keep hoping that Hosp will give us another Scott Finn story.

Forgettable story...couldn't even bother speed reading it to the end as it was that boring.

Avoid this.
