If you enjoy true crime stories and are interested on a fresh take on the investigation/trial process, this is the book for you.
Ms. Straus tells her tale with such passion it makes for a heavy read. This book had me laughing and crying all in one sitting. I couldn't put the book down. I was pulled in from the beginning with curiosity and the want to know more. This was by far one of the best I have read. The daily crimes and cases Ms. Straus shares that she was apart of is both disturbing at times and at times they are joyful.
I think that each and every person out there should read Bronx D.A. by Sarena Straus. Especially those who like to read stories of passion because Ms. Straus definitely shows her passion for her work through her writing. I give this book 5 ***** stars. I am glad I had the chance to read it and I recommend it.
