JOE VENN RETURNS in book 2 of the acclaimed crime thriller series...
Two years after the explosive events of OMEGA DOG, Joe Venn, Marine and former Chicago police lieutenant, is heading up the New York Police Department's elite Division of Special Projects. His job is to investigate crimes of a sensitive, political nature.
While conducting a sting operation to bring down a corrupt landlord with council connections, Venn discovers all is not as it seems. Why has a drug dealer associated with the landlord been shot dead - moments after Venn learned of his existence? And why are Venn's attempts to investigate the matter further being blocked from on high?
Danny Clune is an amateur rock music historian from England, touring the United States for research purposes. He's also a liar, a thief, and on the run from Diego Salazar, the most powerful drug baron in Mexico.
And he's in way over his head...
Venn's and Clune's paths collide in New York, and after a series of violent encounters, Venn realizes that in order to get to the bottom of the conspiracy that's unfolding, he and his sidekicks are going to have to go off the grid.
Which means putting themselves beyond the reach of the law... and in the way of a narcotics cartel so ruthless, it will stop at nothing to achieve its goals.
As events hurtle toward a terrifying climax in South Texas, Venn finds himself having to rely on his wits, on his desperate determination to see the mission through... and on the help of a kid he can never entirely trust.
Tim Stevens is the author of the highly acclaimed thrillers RATCATCHER, DELIVERING CALIBAN, JOKERMAN, SEVERANCE KILL, ANNIHILATION MYTHS and TUNDRA.
