This book was recommended by author, D. K. Gaston so I thought I'd download it and give it a try. I was glad I did. This was my first time reading a book by this author. However, I got so immersed in The Life that I immediately downloaded the rest of the author's books. I'm sure to be entertained. I alternated between liking Honey and wanting to slap her because she was acting hard one minute and coo coo the next. The story in itself was very intriguing. I was thinking the culprit was someone else right up until the last minute.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a fast-paced, drama-filled read.

Honey Sinclair, an independent black woman, is a street smart New York Detective assigned to work on the same streets her father "Tall Paul Sinclair" once controlled his crack trade. Her father is now serving life in prison but the Sinclair family has not been forgotten.

Knowing her background; the cops think she can't be trusted being a drug lord's daughter, and the word on the street in the hood is that she switched sides.

Captain Fitzgerald hates her with a passion...but why? Her partner McGee under- estimates her until he sees her perform Jujitsu on a suspect.

All in all her first week at the 47th precinct is turning out to be one big headache. There is a serial killer on the loose preying on the "Fly Girls" in the hood.

With Captain Fitzgerald being a pain in her rear and partner McGee running behind her like a puppy dog, she seeks to crack her first case.

Honey has a bad premonition about this case; and her style of kicking ass in order to capture a suspect is anything but by the book, which leads her straight into trouble!

The story was entertaining but there were a number of words missing and I felt the characters could have been more developed.

Honey Sinclair is a police officer for the NYPD. Being the daughter of a notorious drug dealer gives her no slack among her coworkers. While working a big case that everyone has doubts about, she connects the dots and notices that people she knows are involved. Will she remain true to her civic duty or does loyalty to the streets come first?

This is my first book by this author and I enjoyed the story he told. Just when I thought I had it all figured it out, I was proven wrong. There were some spelling errors that could not be overlooked. I also believe that the story ended with a few questions left unanswered. I am looking forward to reading more by this author.

The story itself was pretty good, but I had an issue with the main character, Honey. Honey was billed in the synop as this strong, determined chick who got the job done and didn't take any nonsense. Well all through the book Honey was at best, wishy-washy. She was more like a manic depressive OFF the meds and that bugged me. I wanted to really like her, and I loved her strength WHEN she had it that is. Honey had so many issues its wasn't funny. True she was right about her belief concerning her mother, she was like a loose cannon always ready to blow.
I enjoyed the brief glimpse we got of her father, but even that was left hanging as we never saw or heard from him again. Her sister Ginger was the typical dingbat hoodchick, constantly going off on her sister for the love of her baby daddy.
The supporting cast was pretty good, Sweet (her partner) and Angela the dept profiler. I would read another in the series, but I certainly hope in future installments of Honey's adventures she's a bit stronger and more stable!!

Honey Sinclair has just made detective at the 47th precinct in the Bronx. Which wasn't an easy feat as a sexy, sassy black woman working within the NYPD. But what makes it even harder than her looks or her mouth is the fact that her father was one of the Bronx's largest Cocaine Kingpins.

Since her father's fall from grace and incarceration Honey decides to go on the straight and narrow and against the grain by becoming 5-0. But with a sister (Ginger) who's still married to the game can Honey keep work and home separate???

That's not so easy when Honey's first case is a homicide, with a serial killer who has a thing for murdering fly girls. Fly girls that are looking for ballers to sponsor them. Fly girls like Honey's sister Ginger and members of her crew.

Author Alan Cramer has shown his duplicity by proving that he can master more than just one genre. A hood murder mystery, which provides an excellent reprieve from the norm. The Life is definitely that and much more!!!

Honey Sinclair has her work cut out for her. As a beautiful woman, this detective has to fight everyday to prove she deserves her badge as much as the next officer. As the daughter of a street legend, fellow officers view her as a snitch. Family and friends view her as a trader. She can't please everyone as her loyalty is pulled in many different directions. Now Honey is trying to track a serial murderer. All eyes are on her. Will the case make or break her? Can she distinguish the blurry line between business and personal?

Second time author Alan Cramer won't be pigeon held as he shows his versatility in "The Life," an urban suspense drama.
