Publisher's Summary

International bestselling author Jeffery Deaver explores the borderline between lies and loyalty in a story of a brotherhood on the brink.

In the wake of a disastrous firefight with a Mexican cartel, two El Paso police officers find themselves in a military hospital facing a debriefing about what went wrong. As their accounts unfold, Tony, a by-the-book cop, begins to believe that hotheaded Matt might have divided loyalties. Could he have intentionally led the team into a trap that saw the death of a beloved senior officer? Or is the truth even more terrifying than Tony dares to imagine?

Not Jeffrey Deaver's best effort

I've enjoyed the prior short stories in this series but did not care for this one. This is the lowest rating I've ever given a Deaver story.

Thrilling Short with Excellent Twists & Turns


This was my first book from this author. I love the Kindle singles since they give you an opportunity to sample an author's work without a large time commitment. This was a fantastic thriller with excellent twists and turns I did not see coming. A fast paced excellent short. I read this book using immersion reading while listening to the audio book. Scott Merriman did a wonderful job on the narration. I have a few other short stories from this author to sample.

Great short listen!! Patrick Warburton??

Love anything by Jeffery Deaver!! This is no disappointment with all the expected unexpected twists and turns!! I also found it amusing that the narrator does a voice for one of the characters that I thought sounded like a dead on impression of Patrick Warburton!!!

Story needed further development.

When I invest my time in reading, I expect to read. This story was too quickly developed. Though there were some high points, it basically made me feel like "Is that all there is???"

Foul language

Audible maybe you should consider doing some sort of a language rating. I don’t care how good the story might be I don’t intend to listen to the F word being used practically every other word. I couldn’t get past the first five minutes. I’m sure the author would say he was trying to make the story realistic. If you’re going to do that by lacing every sentence with filthy language, just say so. I won’t buy it. Then I won’t have to return it, which I did.

Disappointing

I have been an avid reader of Deaver’s books but this one was definitely inferior to any others I’ve read. The story is shallow and the narrator did not sound convincing.

Boring

I just couldn't seem to get into it. I tried about three times to listen to this short story and still don't know the plot. Remove from device? Yes!

Very disappointed with beginning, middle and end!!

Not much imagination has gone into this book. I was still waiting for it to get going as it were, and it finished. Not worth the money
