From Publishers Weekly

Daily life for an undercover narcotics agent is perilous at best, but add drug addiction to the mix and the narc's world can spin out of control, into a dangerous and violent realm too far from reality for a safe return. Jack Lamb, a Long Island narcotics division cop, is recruited by ambitious and unscrupulous Westchester County DA Jane Carroll for a special undercover op targeting local drug kingpin Ray Sasso, the "family"-connected leader of the Sons of Fire Motorcycle Club. A shaky start turns deadly when, to protect his cover, Jack (who is using the alias Charlie Wolf) starts taking the crystal methamphetamine that Sasso pushes. Addicted to the drug and moving too close to Ray, he grows paranoid, confusing the players and taking a bullet to the head during the blown bust operation. The bullet lodges in his brain and sparks psychic episodes that, combined with drug withdrawal, keep his life off balance. Sasso calls for revenge from his cell, and Jack's wife and young daughter are in real danger when the pushy DA gets him to sign a false report to set Ray up and keep him in prison illegally. Events escalate when a bomb meant for Sasso kills his wife and son by mistake; Jack's nightmare becomes his only reality as Ray reaches out for vengeance. Sears (First Born) writes some of the hardest-edged crime going and his characters are viscerally real. The psychic episodes that become pivotal to the plot resolution will mar the ending for some and render it perfect for others.

From Booklist

Jack Lamb is an undercover cop, not the methamphetamine dealer he pretends to be. He is addicted to meth, however, and his close friend, meth dealer Ray Sasso, is the man he's supposed to be investigating. When a bust goes sour, and Jack winds up with a bullet in his head, he begins to suffer from some self-induced psychotic torture. Only Sasso can take away Jack's pain, but Jack must decide if he is Ray's friend or his pursuer. This is a hard-edged, engrossing tale that moves fluidly from realism to surrealism and back again (several times). Some of the imagery is a little heavy-handed (Jack is a Lamb who poses as a wolf, that sort of thing), but a case can be made that the author's hand is deliberately heavy. The novel isn't nearly as otherworldly as Sears' previous, First Born (2000), and readers expecting another X-Files-like story line may be disappointed. Those looking for something a little different, on the other hand, should be well pleased. David Pitt

Format: Hardcover
Although somewhat different in genre from his first book, this thriller from Richard Sears is a cracker from page 1 to the last. I could not stop turning the pages and the ending took me totally by surprise. It has some of the best writing in any thriller I have ever read, and is well thought out with amazing twists and pace that doesn't let up. This book deserves to go to the number one spot on the bestsellers list.
