When a violent Mexican drug cartel joins forces with a powerful, local gang, Det. Becker Gray is caught in the middle of a series of gruesome murders and grisly attacks. As the violence, betrayals, and pain escalate, revenge fuels the fires that bring a war to the city streets.  
Detective Becker Gray doesn't have many close people in his life. There's his partner, Jeffrey Parker, and Morgan Beringer, the mayor's wife. In his own emotionally-detached way, he treasures both. Yet, when Morgan and her husband are murdered, he doesn't know what to make of his sense of loss and he doesn't lean on Parker for friendship.

Besides, there's no time to do so anyway because there are more dead bodies stacking up than the city can handle. First, a fire fighter is gunned down in broad daylight. Then eight members of a powerful, local gang are killed. Gray discovers all these murders are connected by ties to a Mexican drug cartel, police corruption, and even state attorneys tampering with cases. For Gray, though, these connections only serve as distractions to his main goal of finding Morgan's killer.

Even his only remaining friendship is a distraction. Parker is instead simply another tool Gray uses to corner the murderer.

Gray puts his life and career -- and that of his partner Jeffrey Parker -- on the line in THE WALLS. He faces his most savage nemesis in this exciting, quick, and breath-catching novel that will leave his professional life and the police department in tatters and upheaval.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fabulous crime novel In this book we meet Becker Gray, a Police Detective. Detective Gray doesn’t have many close people in his life. He has a couple of friends, including his partner Jeffrey Parker, and a woman named Morgan Beringer, who is the mayor’s wife. One day Morgan Beringer and her husband are brutally murdered. As if these two murders aren’t enough, more dead bodies show up in various places around the city. Are they all connected somehow or are they all separate cases? The body of a firefighter is found, and then eight members of a powerful gang are killed. Gray discovers all these murders are connected by ties to a Mexican drug cartel, police corruption, and even state attorneys tampering with cases. Gray is determined to find out what is going on and find the person or persons responsible. This book was a great read from beginning to end. I flew through this book and was engrossed in every chapter, and loved following along with the story line and the crimes that were being committed. Detective Becker Gray is a very likeable character, despite keeping to himself a lot and not seeming like a very social person. I loved his wit, his sense of humour and his determination to fight for something that he believes in. He tends to keep to himself a lot and doesn’t confide in a lot of people, but I found him to be quite interesting indeed. And he is one heck of a detective. This book is full of murder, corruption, deception, action and betrayal. Great for any book lover of police procedural or crime books. Once you begin reading this book it is very difficult to put down, and is a fast-paced action read. I enjoyed getting a glimpse into the personal life of Detective Gray and getting an understanding of some of the things he has been through personally in the past to get an understanding of what makes him the kind of person that he is today. It was interesting to read about his growth as a person and as the main character in the book. This book is the 3rd in a Becker Gray series and follows Detective Becker Gray, and the book can be read as a series or a standalone. I have not read the previous two books in this series but it was easy to read along without any prior reading from the previous two books. After reading this book I look forward to reading more novels featuring detective Gray. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and look forward to more by this author.
