However, Charlie Wolf knows his work as a cop deeply undercover is almost over.

    The raid goes down, bullets are exchanged between the cops and the illegal drug distributors, but a high Charlie errs, ending with a bullet in the brain. Removal will mean death so he must learn to live with a piece of ammo that activates psychotic nightmares due to its lobe locale. After a few mental episodes Charlie begins to believe that only Ray can free his mind while Ray knows Charlie betrayed him.

    LAST DAY is a thriller that never slows down from start to finish. Readers will commiserate with Charlie even as everyone will find Ray as a likable family man and detest the DA's lack of ethics to obtain a conviction. Some members of the audience will feel shortchanged as Richard Sears has written an action/psychological thriller that engrosses those readers whom accept the psychological incidents that make up much of the action.
