Cannell's books are mostly excellent and this is no exception. Shane Scully is one of his great characters and this story keeps you turning the pages to find out what's going to happen. I enjoy writers who develop their characters well -- showing their vulnerabilities as well as their strengths -- and Cannell really pulls it off with this book. I liked it so much that as I began reading the book I realized that I had already read it, and in fact have it in my library! But I read it anyway!!

This is the second Shane Scully mystery I've read by Stephen Cannell. I liked it just as much as I liked the first one, The Viking Funeral.

Shane's (LAPD) buddy Emo Rojas (also a cop) is killed in the beginning of the book and it is widely thought to have been a setup by ATF. Scully is tapped to investigate since ATF has submitted a bogus investigative report which no one at LAPD believes.

This appears to be a pissing match between Federal agents (ATF) and the local SWAT team (LASD). Kinda like: You killed out agent so we killed yours. The danger is escalating and more cops are dying. Scully needs to figure what the hell is going on and quickly before he too is caught in the crossfire.
