Get ready for a fun and exciting ride with Faceless Fox by Edward Vogler. The crime drama will keep readers engrossed in the story until the end. It is entertaining and occasionally dark, but the book also stays true to the genre. It comes with a street-wise detective and plenty of crime and action. Detective Rick Hill has a reputation, and it's not a good one. He doesn't mind bending the rules if it solves a case. Bullets flying around also doesn't faze Rick Hill, like any good detective he's seen plenty of action. In Faceless Fox, Detective Hill is severely tested both by a gruesome crime and office politics. Adding to his problems is the rookie detective he's saddled with training. Wondering if the rookie is here to replace him is a question Detective Hill ponders as he's trying to meet his superior's impossible timeline.
Rick's boss is pushing him to quickly solve the case and they're watching his every move. The FBI is watching him and he wants to show that he's ready to become a federal agent. With his boss growing even more impatient, Rick takes the biggest gamble of his life. His risky and unconventional plan didn't stop the drugs that were flowing into the city. Worse, he didn't capture the killer.
Just when readers think life can't get any worse for Rick Hill, there is another unpleasant surprise. It seems that Detective Hill has been keeping secrets and everyone finds out that he's not the person they thought they knew. The drama heats up when Rick has to make his decision. Who or what will he sacrifice in the end?
