Enjoyable read. Characters seem like real people. Makes you want to keep turning the pages!

Gritty mystery with Sully, reporter-who-has-baggage as the central character. Visit the underbelly of Washington DC where Sully connects random deaths as connected. By the end you understand who gets played. Great plot and reason to check out book #2.
