This was an excellent police procedural novel. It was well researched showing the tedious side of police work and the action side of homicide. I was amazed at how well the detective work was depicted.
It has a dual plot line entwined into the story. Both lines are entertwined throughout the book, with each of equal interest.
The main character, J.T. Trainer, was believable and interesting. You get to know him well and enjoy his adventures immensely.
My favorite quote: "I deny the allegation and I deny the alligator."
The Bad Stuff:
There were a few typographical/editorial errors in the Kindle edition. Not enough to ruin the book, but enough to be a distraction now and then. There was a spot at the end where I think a picture was supposed to have been pasted, but it wasn't there. However, it is clear, after reading the book, what it was a picture of and it didn't hurt the storyline at all.
There was one scene depicted in the book that I felt the main character, who was telling the story, really had no way of knowing in such detail. Basically, it's where someone talks his father into buying insurance on his son as hostage for a gambling debt. The boy wasn't there and no one told him the details of the conversation, just that it had happened.
Overall: This was an excellent novel. If you enjoy police procedurals, you will love this one.
Rating: R for violence and some sexual descriptions of pedophilia.
Length: Full Novel: 10,328 locations.
This is one of the best of Grace's novels by far. Excellent plotting, believable characters and great dialogue. It moves well and I like the two story lines that run through the book.
Kindles still have trouble with formatting so sometimes there are too many spaces betweens words, or none at all - but that is not the author's fault. I am sure as e-books are refined we will see less of this issue. It shouldn't detract from the strength of the story though.
Wonderful writing and I cannot wait to read more of David Grace's work.
When a young girl is killed when caught in the cross-fire of an assassination plot, JT finds a web of murder, fraud, child abuse, and corruption of high officials. This is a police procedural that gets a little bogged down with details at times, but I did enjoy the story and the underlying need to know what happened to Hannah. The characters are believable and I especially enjoyed the relationship JT had with the couple that took him in when he had no family.
This is the second David Grace book I have reviewed. Shooting Crows at Dawn was the first.
