Book Description

The first "pop!" was quickly followed by three more. He saw blurry people looking at him from outside his car. He saw a gun. His entire body tingled with pain. Overwhelmed, he leaned back in the driver's seat and felt his mother's loving arms around him.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR After graduating magna cum laude from Georgetown Law Center in 1992, R. Michael Bullotta began his law career as a prosecutor in the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, where he was quickly assigned to the Hardcore Gang Division, an elite unit of pros¬ecutors who handled exclusively gang-related homicides. In 1997, he was appointed an Assistant United States Attorney in Los Angeles by then Attorney General Janet Reno. As a federal prosecutor in L.A., he prosecuted domestic and international drug trafficking cartels. Currently, he lives in Michigan and works in the Detroit United States Attorney's Office, where he prosecutes public corruption cases and writes screenplays.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down September 23, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love discovering a talented new author and Mr. Bullotta can definitely be listed among the best.

The stage is set during the opening for the plot twists that follow. Nothing gets in the way of the story as Jordon begins his new career in L.A. The suspenseful page-turner keeps your attention as it builds toward the unexpected climax.

The story develops as Jordon Stowic, a newly appointed prosecutor in L.A., moves from the midwest to the City of Lights and is quickly introduced to the courtroom. Rooming with his childhood best friend, Stan, he discovers life in LA and unsuspectingly becomes ensnarled in an investigation being conducted by Detective Juan Jose Ramirez. Detective Ramirez is furiously looking for the murderer of his "adopted" son, but all of his leads have dried up and he has come to a dead end. As the driven detective attempts to re-start his investigation, the unsuspecting Jordon soon finds himself drawn in, becoming a target of the criminal group responsible for the murder.

Bullotta has done a wonderful job writing a book that is hard to put down. As a first endeavor, it's remarkabley well written and will keep you spelbound as the story progresses. Definitely a must read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Captivating! November 4, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"The Firm" by Grisham was one of my favorite books ever. "Hard Core" is "The Firm", but with a more intriguing backdrop-criminals, gangs, detectives, forensic chemists and prosecutors. A must read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I read in a long time! November 3, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
John Grisham meets Mary Higgins Clark! You will find yourself whipping through this page turner so make sure you have some
time because you will not want to put it down. Congratulations to the Author who writes his first book with such fire and substance!
Love his style and patiently wait for his next book! I am sure they will make a movie out of this one it is so great!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fact and Fiction January 10, 2012
Definitely a good read. I worked in a "City" that has its issues with gangs and saw first hand how it effects everyone associated with them. The book depicts this very well. No one is safe! Enjoyed the plot; the twists and turns; the surprises of peoples activities; makes one question (again) what someone will sell out for in their life. Looking forward to the next book. Will it follow Jordan or will another character come into being? Kudos for a fab first book.
