DC Winter has gone undercover in an attempt to infiltrate the inner circle of the city's premier drug lord. Isolated from his colleagues, resenting the way his superiors have presented him the job as a fait accompli, and abroad in a world where money is easy and respect is earned in brutally straightforward ways, Winter is in his element—worryingly so. Concerns among his superiors that Winter may finally have had too much temptation put in his path are soon supplanted by two vicious murders. First a high-profile local property developer is shot, with clinical efficiency, in his own bed. A few days later a government minister is assassinated while his car is stuck in a traffic jam. A fevered investigation begins with Winter's erstwhile boss, detective inspector Faraday, in charge. With clues hard to come by, the government panicking, and the anti-terrorist branch circling, Faraday is shoved off the case and left in charge just of the investigation into the property developer's murder. Faraday is also tasked with keeping track of Winter and soon discovers that Winter, the arch-conspirator, has been set up. As Winter begins to realize what his bosses had in mind for him and Faraday begins to put together the pieces of a heartbreaking story of personal and political betrayal that may well link the two murders, The Price of Darkness becomes a study of the desperate measures some people take when their friends and their society let them down.

About the Author:

Graham Hurley is the award-winning author of the DI Joe Faraday series, as well as several other works of fiction.

From AudioFile:

Detective Paul Winter goes undercover to investigate a drug kingpin. Meanwhile, Detective Joe Faraday, Winter's superior, is assigned to investigate the murder of a property developer and the assassination of a government minister by two motorcyclists. Their investigations eventually coalesce, with Winter's role and motivation at issue. While the story is clever and at times riveting, it's a bit long and contains some questionable subplots. Narrator Tim Pepper's adeptness with dialogue helps the novel flow smoothly. Pepper is particularly effective at evoking the tension between Winter and Faraday as the men recognize that their investigations are leading to conclusions neither of them is comfortable with.
