From Publishers Weekly:

DEA special agent Ed Fleming knows that his job is leading to burnout. He isn't making cases, the NYPD has busted his best snitch and the new agent in charge is down on him. To top it off, Fleming's second marriage is disintegrating, a victim, like the first one, of the pressures of his job. Then he gets a line that may lead him right to the top of a major Mafia crime family. Throwing departmental regulations and domestic circumspection to the winds, Fleming rushes to an explosive confrontation with the mob. This grittily violent first novel is unsparingly gory; among other bloody scenes, there's a brutally graphic depiction of a mob execution by means of a meat-hook. Former undercover narcotics agent Hogan presumably knows the milieu he describes. One hopes, though, that he has exaggerated a world in which the cops seem barely less vile than the villains.

From Library Journal:

Hogan's experience as an undercover narcotics agent has not translated very well into this first novel about illegal drug dealings in the big city. The minimal plot involves New York narcotics agent Ed Fleming's pursuit of a big drug deal and some top Mafia leaders. The author's exploration of police procedures is superficial at best; his description of Mafia power and politics in family and business realtionships is by turns amusing, gross, and gruesome. The dialogue is cliche-ridden, the style is poor, and the sex and violence are graphic and gratuitous. Not recommended.Jean B. Palmer, Andover, Mass.
