Yes, this is a well written book with good characters and the descriptions of working for the NYPD and living in NY seem pretty authentic, but what you aren't told about this book is that it's "Christian Fiction." You don't realize this at first, but after a couple of chapters, the main character(a cop) gets stuck with a new partner. The main character is a depressed, lonely young guy who drinks daily and has a highly dysfunctional family. Anyway, the new partner soon reveals himself to be a Jesus Freak and spends his time trying to counsel the main character about finding God and tells him and the crooks they encounter how much Jesus loves them all.
The main character accepts all this Jesus stuff a little too quickly and easily and the next thing you know, he and his partner are having Bible study and reading and discussing the bible during downtime during their shifts.
Again, if you can't stomach this sort of thing, skip past this one. It's basically a "Come to Jesus," book. I should have known something was up when I read several chapters involving cops that drink heavily and womanize and not a single swear word in the dialogue.
I don't regret reading the book, but I certainly am not paying money to read the others(this apparently is a series).
*mild spoiler alert*
I didn't really like the part about his alcoholism. I find it very hard to believe that he could go from being that heavy a drinker to not drinking. Cold turkey. Alcoholism is HARD to overcome and I feel like this author downplayed it a lot.
