5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling Ash Levine Page-Turner, March 30, 2012
By 
This review is from: Midnight Alley: An Ash Levine Thriller (Hardcover)
Top-cop Ash Levine of the LAPD elite Felony Special Squad was called when two young men were found murdered in an alley. One was the son of a high profile city councilman and leading critic of the LAPD; the other a childhood friend. Although consider good boys, one had an ancient mask covered with jewels in his possession. He had told others he found the mask at a routine checkpoint near Baghdad when he was serving in Iraq, and he smuggled it into the US.

The complex case took a personal turn when Ash became a target. Someone had put out a hit on him because he was coming too close to solving the case. The deeper he dug into the killings, the more he realized this was much bigger than he first anticipated, and included the Russian mafia, hit men, and uncooperative cops within his own department.

Midnight Alley is the second novel written by Miles Corwin following the highly esteemed Kind of Blue. Corwin's extensive insight regarding the LA crime scene has given him an insider's grasp of police procedural, homicide investigations, and life on the streets of L.A.

His novels are gritty and hard hitting with a rich texture that will keep readers involved in the story. The swift pace and detailed scenes build excitement and keep readers turning pages to the unexpected end.

Fans of police procedurals will enjoy Corwin's writing. He keeps things moving, throws in a red herring or two, and his detailed knowledge of criminals and investigations keeps his stories realistic.
