Every city has organized crime. But only River City has a Russian gangster like Valeriy. He’s meticulous, cunning, and willing to sacrifice anything–and anyone–to see his conquest through.
In Val’s way are the men and women of the River City Police Department, including rookie B.J. Carson. She’s trying to fill the shoes of a legend while the pressures of patrol and her own past catch up to her. She and her colleagues must unite and work together with a former River City cop turned FBI agent to face down the single biggest organized crime threat River City has ever seen.

“Above all, the crime genre prides itself on pacing, and this is where Zafiro delivers. He knows when a bit of slack only serves to heighten the tension; and the romance, brutality, scheming, arguments, heart-to-hearts, jovial banter, and, of course, death are dished out in just the right amounts in the right places. And Every Man Has to Die is a one sitting read for all the right reasons.”
E.J. Iannelli, The Inlander
“Possibly the most complicated and hard hitting novel in the series…”
Kevin Tipple, independent reviewer
“The novel has a complex plot…that Zafiro has woven together with seeming ease.”
