“One of America’s greatest storytellers.” (Stephen King)
Neal Carey is not your usual private eye. A graduate student at Columbia University, he grew up on the streets of New York, usually on the wrong side of the law. Then he met a PI who introduced him to the Bank, an exclusive institution with a sideline in keeping its wealthy clients happy and out of trouble. They pay Neal’s college tuition, and Neal gets an education that can’t be found in any textbook, from learning how to trail a suspect to mastering the proper way to search a room.
Now it’s payback time. The Bank wants Neal to put his skills to work in finding Allie Chase, the rebellious teenage daughter of a prominent senator. The problem is that she’s gone underground in the London punk scene. To get her back, Neal has to follow her into a violent netherworld where drugs run rampant and rage is the name of the game.
"A flair for language, quick wit, and detail complete a winning first novel." (Library Journal)
"Winslow keeps his plot moving quickly despite many twists and turns." (Pittsburgh Press)

The Character and the history of Neil are well done! The story however becomes lame when the adversaries are introduced: styling the pimp as a punk (who is only by fashion) makes the whole set up appear arbitrary as one might expect of a writer in need of a niche group in a foreign country ...
In diesem Hörbuch passt alles! Wer Don Winslow mag wird die Geschichte lieben. Joe Barett scheint mit keinem englischen Dialekt Probleme zu haben, sodass Zusammenhänge nur aus Dialogen klar werden. Nur zu empfehlen!
