Fans of Mr. Hardwick will welcome the return of Danny Cavanaugh, Marshall Jackson, and Jesse King, characters from his previous novels whose paths cross as the story progresses. While we get updates on Jackson and King, the book focuses mostly on Danny Cavanaugh, a white detective who was raised in inner city Detroit, his investigation of this crime, and changes in his personal life. Even readers who have not read Mr. Hardwick's previous books will appreciate Danny and the other well developed characters in this story. Can't wait for the next book. Bravo!
Bringing his fans back Danny Cavanaugh, Hardwick takes us not only into the fight to solve a brutal murder mystery but also to possibly save the soul of Detroit. Using his knowledge of the city, Hardwick takes the readers on a sinister plot that shows that corruption and arrogance has no color but the price for crossing the wrong one is almost certainly death. Wanting to follow the clues wherever they lead him not only puts the beloved Cavanaugh in harm's way but threatens to uncover a masterful cover-up that could rock the entire city of Detroit to its core.
Using his skill with dialogue and getting the reader into the head of the characters, Gary Hardwick has delivered another literary buffet of suspense and mystery coupled with real emotion. One of the sidebar issues that struck me in reading CITYCIDE was the price that those in law enforcement sometimes have to pay in order to be the best at what they do. It's not just about risking their lives. Their families and everything they love are put at risk as well.
CITYCIDE is one of those books that will be perfect for the summer but is sure to entertain and keep you engaged from start to finish. You won't be disappointed.
From the opening sequence you find yourself wanting to turn the page to find out what happens next and then when something does happen, you want to know what will happen after that, as you are never really sure as to what will happen next.
This book is totally and completely invigorating.
So, if you are looking for a book to read that will literally have you turning the pages in anticipation of what is going to be revealed, said, or done, this is the book to purchase!!!
Kudos to Mr. Hardwick, on a very well written and plotted out novel.
