“Gunfights and well-choreographed scenes of carnage abound . . . This is pure, visceral action.” — Publishers Weekly
Shortlisted for the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Crime Novel
“You set me loose. Everything that happened was because you saw fit to use me as bait. And what was I on the hook for? You just wanted a bust you could attach your name to so you could get ahead. Don’t try to pretend that you’re Dudley Do-Right. You’re just an opportunist with a badge.”
They should have known better than to look for him. Wilson had been gone for two years until his old boss forced him to come home to be a grinder again. Wilson did the job he was blackmailed into doing and settled things, his way, with everyone. He was free — for two minutes.
A random car accident destroys everything and puts Wilson into the crosshairs again, but this time the gun is in the hands of a cop. Justice isn’t blind in the city; it’s as bent as the tip of a bullet. Dirty cops are using Wilson as bait and the only way for him to stay out of cuffs is to help put someone worse in them. Wilson picks a fight with the Russian mob and lures both cops and robbers into his own trap. Everyone is crooked in the city, but not everyone is a survivor.
In Plain Sight is the third book featuring reluctant mob-enforcer Wilson, following Darwin’s Nightmare (2008) and Grinder (2009).
“Readers who like their mean streets really mean will be thoroughly satisfied.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Grinder
