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.

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.

Horrible Narrator

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

For our lord shall not give u more than you carry

In as much as we still believe in injustice I am certain there are too many guilty people who escape it but the Black Lotus, none ever do.
