This is a book for lovers of action and lots of characters. A book with lots of everything that makes for a thriller, mystery and suspense. Based on the drug business, it is a tale that will leave you shuddering from the bone-chilling cold in the nature of men who would be drug lords or who would use drugs to deliberately destroy oter people simply because of who they were. Undercover Police Office Jacob 'Doc' Holloway has been working to establish himself as Brick Jones and gain the confidence of a drug seller named Mummy Jenkins for the JANUS project, an operation aimed at identifying and bringing to justice the big and small fish in the drug business in the nation's capital, Washington, D.C. His partner is Jack 'Diehard' Tilden. Doc finds to his surprise that nothing is as it seems. The work he was doing is suddenly brought to an end and he learns the real reason for the operation. He is suddenly no longer under cover. That is, until he decides what to do about it. Danger stalks Doc as he stalks criminals. There are times he isn't sure who he can trust, as he learns to his sorrow. Everyone seems to have their own agenda and he is caught in the middle. He find shimself caught in the crossfire of a drug war, but the question is just who is fighting who and why. A book that will hold the reader's attention, one to please lovers of action and rapid changes of tone and scene. Author Quinton Peterson gives the reader a well-plotted, well-constructed and well-written story set against the backdrop of Washington, D.C. He understands the motives and passions that move his characters and they seem to act independently of the author which is what creates a very readable book.
