KIRKUS REVIEW

 Chicago cabbie/avenger Cooper MacLeish (Bury It Deep, 1993, etc.) is married now, and driving for just one client, real- estate tycoon Regis Swanson. Except for the errands that Cooper sometimes runs between Swanson and the union bullyboys, it's a quiet life--until an enterprising second-tier capitalist named Sean McTeague hijacks a million dollars in drug money and decides to throw the ponytailed enforcers off his track by feeding them, via an anonymous tip to the local DEA, the name of Swanson's son Nate, a struggling rock-club manager with no visible means of support. The feds go after Nate, of course, but all they find are the body parts that Turk and Ferocious Dick have left behind. And the race is on--as Cooper pulls every string in Chicago to identify McTeague while Turk and Dick plod along, weapons at the ready, trying to identify him so they can kidnap his bride, take a bloody revenge for the wounds he's left them with, and reclaim the money Regis Swanson just doesn't have. Cooper's fourth adventure is as smooth and tough as all the others. The man's doing his bit to make the streets of Chicago a little safer--and a lot more interesting.
