Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Boston is in the grip of the coldest winter on record, but in its criminal underworld the temperature is rising. Harbor chief Cormack O'Connell has lived his life close to the wire - above and below the law. He knows every movement on his waterfront, and that's why someone wants him out of the way, fast. Homeland security agent Kit Steele is committed to avenge terrorism. Also known as The Hunter, she's got her eye on the prize. This time it's personal, and she has nothing left to lose. Her prey is Vincente Carpio, one of the world's most dangerous criminals. He is clever, calculating and he's biding his time. Diamond O'Connell is a daughter, a lover and a fighter. She's seen things most nineteen-year-old girls couldn't even begin to imagine. And she's about to become a pawn in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Everyone has their part to play, but now it seems that there are much darker, far-reaching forces at work which look to be preparing for the international stage" --

    Cormack O'Connell, president of the Consolidated Union of Pilots and Dockworkers, reigns over all of the cargo coming through Boston Harbor. Granted, he takes a cut of the illegal shipments, but he's respected for running a fair, disciplined operation and shutting violent gangs out of the port. T'Phong Soh, a captain in the Boston street gang MS-13, is plotting to expand his trafficking operation by taking control of the harbor and knows he'll need to get rid of Cormack to do so. But Soh doesn't have the numbers to take down Cormack's loyal crew, so he negotiates a temporary alliance with another MS-13 captain, Javier Carpio. In exchange for Carpio helping deal with Cormack, Soh will coordinate Carpio's brother Vincente's prison escape. But they don't know that Cormack and Special Agent Kit Steele have been sharing information on Boston's underworld, and Steele has a particular interest in keeping Vincente Carpio, a merciless killer, off the streets. When Soh's first attempt on Cormack's life fails, Boston becomes a battleground for MS-13 and Cormack's seamen. Dirty fighting, clever strategizing, and complicated romances drive this story at breakneck pace. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
