Publisher's Summary

Detective James Wolf earned the nickname Lone Wolf from his inability to work with a partner. He's a hard cop who doesn't mind bending the rules to the breaking point to make a case, which is why Internal Affairs is digging in his backyard, looking for buried bones. People are starting to wonder which side of the law the Lone Wolf really hunts for. With his career hanging by a thread, he needs a major show of good faith to stay employed and out of prison. That's when he gets the call.

From the moment he arrives at the crime scene, Detective Wolf knows he's in over his head. He's a narcotics detective called in to consult on a homicide, but this is no ordinary homicide - a priest was butchered in his own church, the body left behind with a promise of more to follow.

The only lead is the killer's calling card: a black lotus flower. Detective Wolf now has the opportunity to wipe his service record clean, in exchange for tracking and stopping the Black Lotus before the next victim is claimed.

Accepting this assignment was Wolf's attempt to get Internal Affairs off his back. But when his hunt for the Black Lotus leads him to a cold case from his past, it becomes personal.

Horrible Narrator

Every audiobook Cary Hite has narrated, I have hated! His narration is always dull, monotone, and completely uninspired.

Decent listen.

Would you try another book from K'wan and/or Cary Hite?

I may, this was ok, I appreciated the story, but it felt like there were too many moving parts.

Would you recommend Black Lotus to your friends? Why or why not?

depends on the person.

What about Cary Hite’s performance did you like?

Yes it was good.

Was Black Lotus worth the listening time?

in retrospect yes.

Must read, but must pay attention

Good read, but if you don't pay attention you'll be lost. I can't wait to read book two.

Very Enjoyable.

From the beginning it moved straight forward. I was on my toes with this one. Thirsty for more hoping it would keep my attention and adrenaline going! Thise dogs scared the heck out of me. I never want to see a black lotus. Detective James Wolf is relentless at his profession. I found him to be a stand up guy. Captain Marks ugh, selfish, self centered, unashamedly well I can't find the correct words yet. Father Fleming a Pastor a man of the cloth comes up dead one should've conducted better interviewing methods but I feel considering why stands in the way. The over determination unafraid journalist well I felt she was either foolish, or had a grudge to bear against Detective Wolf. She always came off as annoying to me. I was right to feel that way she servred her purpose so was i or was I not wrong! I haven't decided yet. That poor boy died for i.m.o. I felt so bad for the whole family instantly. The poor father a mess, the son rotting from the inside while the wife and grief stricken mom suffered and watch her family fall completely apart is something to really think about as a mom and wife. How would I handle the worst days of my life? Mrs Gooding, Her poor son Johnny, her survivor's guilt sticking son, Tom felt unheard and very confused as to speaking up. His father hopefully can stop drinking John can do it im routing for him. Captain Margaret Marks well shes assuming in titled and unapologetic her ethics well I felt she's born without them. I don't like her! The waitress I 😍 The Lotus left a expression of helping from another reality and nor of looking at how to dole out justice I can't blame them. I'd love to say more but I won't spoil it. The second priest is sometimes needed when you want to keep you true emotions a secret. very much enjoyed the in between back drops of stories thrown in. I wish I could've gotten my oral answer but I'm still hooked and a fan. This is a great read. The Arthur did a wonderful job so did the Narrator Carol Fyite. Gary Fyite also did his thing. K'wan great job. I'm a fan now. There are many people many twist and turns doesn't go far off with them. So many names worth mentioning but you should read it yourself. Don't let the cover or even reviews deture you from this I've also never invested a lengthy review like this so that says a lot.
