I'd caution the author to take more care with his ebook formatting, perhaps to the point of having a professional format his books for him. The paragraph indents and spacing problems were very distracting. Other than that, if you want lots of action and drama, then this will be an engaging read.
It soon becomes apparent to Roni that Hyatt's motivation for his complex plans for civil disobedience is far more sinister than first thought. She soon finds herself getting close to the man himself, and is welcomed by him and his twelve 'disciples' into the inner circle of his organisation. There is a terrible price to be paid for Roni though, who, having been drugged, is subjected to gang rape by Hyatt and his disciples as part of her ;initiation into the inner circle.
The author pulls no punches here, and this is as gritty and realistic as any of his previous books. Violence lurks round every corner, and on every page, as Roni, determined to earn a promised promotion to the rank of detective is she succeeds in her mission, now goes all out to bring not only Hyatt, but his closest followers to justice. There's a touch of romance too, which I'll leave you to explore yourselves, and also profound tragedy and loss of life as the final chapters gather speed as they carry us towards an explosive conclusion.
Definitely a five star read!
In my humble opinion, Mr. Dizon has done it again. A fresh breath of air to a tired genre - crime drama - this novel features a stunning NYPD Detective - Veronika Heydreth - investigating the actions of a charismatic hobo who's much more than he seems. Adolf Hyatt (self-proclaimed King of the Hoboes) starts the reader off with a peaceful campaign to bring attention to the homeless dilemma in NYC. As the plot thickens, so does the danger, intrigue, and message behind this novel.
Dizon's characters and narration take you to the back alleys and soup kitchens of New york - and strands you there. As you read, you'll find out what it means to be a homeless person - the trials, dangers, and the utter hopelessness they face on a daily basis.
With a twisty plot that's become the trademark of a Dizon novel, King of the Hoboes is his most accessible novel, yet still a mind-tripping experience that will entertain you from the first page to the last. Five Stars.
The author does a fantastic job setting the scene to the finest detail, and giving insight and character to each individual personality in the story. Roni is a hard nosed girl who relishes her independence and seeks a promotion as detective. Her partner and boyfriend Evan lives on the upper crust side of New York. They are used to their luxuries. Adolf Hyatt is the evil King of the Hobo underworld. He is intelligent, conniving, and philosophical, easily luring innocents into his web.
With genius and colorful words King of the Hoboes makes being homeless a reality. Roni, has to fight and think about where she is going to find food, where she can take a shower, how to clean her clothes, and where to sleep. This novel sends a powerful message to the reader.
King of the Hoboes is a thought provoking thrill ride!
