Publisher's Summary

#1 New York Times bestselling detective Billy Harney of The Black Book is chasing down a billionaire crime boss and a prison escape artist while a young girl's life hangs in the balance.

As Chicago PD’s special-ops leader, Detective Billy Harney knows well that money is not the only valuable currency. The filthy rich man he’s investigating is down to his last twenty million. He’s also being held in jail.

For now.

Billy’s unit is called in when an escape plan results in officers down and inmates vanished.

In an empty lot, Billy spots two Kevlar vests. Two helmets. Two assault rifles. And a handwritten note:

Hi, Billy

Are you having fun yet?

If you've followed the Billy Harney series, you went be disappointed. The ending will infuriate you because it leaves you longing for the next installment.

Another Winner

I so enjoy a series. It's like talking with an old friend. Although it took me by surprise, I enjoyed that sibling interaction was limited.

Billy Harney is back

While not as thrilling and heart-wrenching as the two previous installments, this was a good work in the Billy Harney series. We didn’t get as much of Harney-family shenanigans in this installment, but, for me, the most emotionally resonant parts of the story were involving such scenes. I’m not sure if there will be more books in this series, but I sure hope so. I’ve become quite fond of the Billy Goat. The narration was excellent as usual.

P.S. One big negative of this series is a disproportionate number of strong female characters getting fridged.
