Publisher's Summary

A newbie Seattle detective gets an education in corruption in a short story that explores Detective Castigliano’s origins in the Seattle PD by Robert Dugoni, the Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Tracy Crosswhite series.

His old life in the rearview, Del Castigliano has left Wisconsin to work homicide for the Seattle PD. Breaking him in is veteran detective Moss Gunderson, and he’s handing Del a big catch: the bodies of two unidentified men fished from Lake Union. It’s a major opportunity for the new detective, and Del runs with it, chasing every lead - to every dead end. Despite the help of another section rookie, Vic Fazzio, Del is going nowhere fast. Until one shotgun theory looks to be dead right: the victims are casualties of a drug smuggling operation. But critical information is missing - or purposely hidden. It’s forcing Del into a crisis of character and duty that not even the people he trusts can help him resolve.

Too short.

it felt incomplete. One minute I'm listening to a story that is building my interest, then boom, it's finished.

Excellent Story

First time reading/listening to Robert Dugoni, and it won't be the last. Everything about this short crime story was perfect, the characters were well developed into a smooth flowing storyline. Also Mr. Dugoni perfectly narrated his own book. Recommended for lovers of smart crime fiction.

More Please?

I have always been a fan of Del and Faz. I hope this short story means Robert Dugoni is testing the waters for a spin off of the Tracy Crosswhite series. I would love to hear how this plays out with Moss (sp?) and would love to read about further cases Del and Faz get to investigate. I enjoyed this and look forward to more.

Oh phooey!

This may have a storyline in it somewhere. The narrator also author, is a horrible reader! His staccato style is boring.
Glad I only spent $.60 on it!

Just too short

Nothing wrong with the story as such - however it is only just over an hour! Appreciate this is advertised but have never checked before and all books have been several hours - including all of Robert Dugoni’s other books.
Disappointing in the end as I feel a lot more could have been written to build on the plot.
Left me feeling ripped off!

Oh dear!!

Some people are born to act, write or narrate and sorry Robert but please stick to writing the book!!
I was actually quite excited to listen to this one, because Robert was doing the narrative himself, but oh my, oh my indeed!!
Listening to Robert droning on was akin to nails down a blackboard!! It was lacking any enthusiasm, any charisma, monotone and tediously unvarying!! There was just one voice for everyone and it was tiresome!! I just hope this was his one and done for narrating, as I know I could never let myself go through that again!! I love the story, but the rest blah!!

This is a short prequel

What happened - it just finished???? The story was building nicely and then cam to an abrupt end as if the author had reached his word count. I feel cheated.
